Bethune-Cookman posted a tournament-record 885 Sunday en route to winning its eighth NCAA Division I PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship.

The Wildcats posted three straight rounds of 295 on the Ryder Course at PGA National.

Bethune-Cookman, which features an international mix of English, Venezuelan and American players, was led by junior Kim Wong and senior Emma Tayler.

Wong won the individual title at 216, while Tayler tied for second at 219 with Texas Pan-American’s Haley Hocott.

“This was a team that supported each other on and off the course,” Wong said. “We came in and did what we had to do.”

Loritz “Scooter” Clark took over coaching duties in late April after coach Gary Freeman reduced his role due to health reasons.

Texas-Pan American was second at 86-over 938.

Cal State Monterey Bay won the Independent Division title.
