The Seminole State College of Florida Raider Women’s Golf team are once again national champions, winning the 2023 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Championship for the fourth straight year. The Raiders finished by 22 strokes over in-state rival Daytona State College Falcons and 31 strokes over Western Texas Westerners, which took third place.
Seminole State stayed strong during the four days of competition with rounds of 293, 313,291 and 304 at Buffalo Dunes Golf Course in Garden City, Kansas. Although Seminole State lead after all four rounds, the Falcons picked up a stroke during the second round.
"This was a true team victory. I am extremely proud of how they performed under pressure. They were composed and confident," said head coach Christa Teno alluding to the winds, the weather delay (3rd round) and the strong play of Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) rival Daytona State.
All five of the Raider Women’s Golf championships have been won under Coach Teno.
Raider Women’s Golf won its first championship trophy in 2015, followed by a win in 2019. With no championship in 2020 due the pandemic, the Raiders came back in 2021 to earn their second consecutive title and repeated in 2022.
The Seminole State Raider Athletics Department was established in 1965. The Raiders compete in three NJCAA Division I sports: baseball, softball and women’s golf and men’s and women’s cross country.
