Daytona State women repeat at NJCAAs
Daytona State won its second consecutive NJCAA Women’s Championship May 16, and seventh title overall.
Daytona State finished at 22-over 866, 20 shots ahead of Seminole State (Fla.) at LPGA International’s Hills Course. The tournament was reduced to 54 holes after the third round was washed out by rain.
It was the fourth title since 2010 for the Lady Falcons, who also won titles in 2003-05.
Tiffany Chan, a freshman at Daytona State, led wire-to-wire to capture the individual title. Chan finished at even-par 216. Chan’s opening 4-under 68 tied for second-lowest individual round in NJCAA history. Chan is Daytona State’s first national champion since Mitsuki Katahira won back-to-back titles in 2010-11.
Teammates So Young Hwang and Mary Dawson tied for second at 223 to help pace Daytona State. Whitney Stevenson finished fifth and Courtney Cobb was 12th for Daytona State.
Seminole State placed all five players in the top 10, led by Chanya Angwarawong’s fourth-place finish.
