GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Stephanie Connelly is heading home for the NCAA Championship.
At the East Regional, the UCF senior qualified as an individual for the event at Caves Valley, which is just 40 minutes from where Connelly grew up in Pasadena, Md.
Connelly, who closed with rounds of 69-68 to finish runner-up at the University of Florida’s Mark Bostick Golf Course, has played Caves Valley twice before – at the Maryland Open and in the AJGA’s Canon Cup.
“I haven’t had the greatest college career,” said Connelly, who finished T-50 or higher three times this sesaon. “But it’s just so cool. I’m kind of in a cloud right now.”
