Scores

Daytona State College is once again the NJCAA champion in women’s golf.

The Falcons, who were runner-up last year at the NJCAA Women’s Championship, shot 12-over 876 in 54 holes at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla., and on Thursday captured the program’s eighth national title.

Daytona State, led by head coach Laura Brown, finished 25 shots better than Seminole State College, which is located about 30 minutes away in Lake Mary, Fla. McLennan Community College, which captured the NJCAA men’s title on Friday, placed third, another eight shots behind.

Ji Sun Kang shot 72-67-68 to finish at 9-under 207 to not only lead Daytona State but also win the NJCAA individual title by 12 shots over teammate Katie Veale and McLennan’s Roanne Tomlinson.

Daytona State is considered one of the elite programs in the NJCAA and has had many of its players go on to have success on the Division I level. Most recently, two-time national champion Tiffany Chan is competing for USC this week at the NCAA Division I Women’s Championship.
