Women's golf earns national runner-up honors

The Seminole State College of Florida women’s golf team capped off its run in the 2012 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Championship with a second-place finish. 
 
The Raiders finished just behind top-ranked Redlands Community College (Oklahoma) on Thursday, May 17, with a four-day total of 1225 (318-309-300-298), and 10 strokes ahead of No. 3 Western Texas College. Host and in-state rival Daytona State College – whom Seminole State beat for the NJCAA Region 8 championship in April – finished at No. 4, and McLennan Community College (Texas) rounded out the top five.
 
After a slow start on day one, which left Seminole State in fifth place, the Raiders tightened up with strong performances in the second, third and fourth days, including a season-best 298 in the final round and a season-second-best 300 in round three.
 
Seminole State landed all six golfers in the top 20, including five team golfers and one individual. All five team golfers finished in the top 15 and now qualify to be recognized as All-Americans. Erica Wardzinski, of Hillsborough County, led the Raiders with a combined four-day total of 306, good for No. 5 individually overall. Elia Folch, of Spain, finished two strokes behind to tie for No. 7. 
 
Raiders Lauren Shuford, of Brooksville; Joanna Yoo, of Orange Park; and Victoria Choi, of British Columbia, Canada finished in the top 15.
 
Among the pool of individuals participating, Raider golfer Kiley Mettler, of Horseshoe Bend, Ark., finished second, with a four-day individual total of 316.
 
This season marks the best finish in the program's five-year history. The 2012 tournament also marked the first time Seminole State qualified a full team of five golfers to compete, as well as a sixth golfer to participate in the individuals tournament.
 
The tournament was held at LPGA International's Legends Course in Daytona Beach.
