Seminole State's Tuan-Yu Chiang (74-72-68) posted a 4-under 68 on Tuesday, Feb. 21, to co-champion The Lady Moc Classic at the Grasslands Golf & Country Club in Lakeland, Fla.
Chiang from Honolulu, Hawaii, and Saint Leo University’s Marie Coors (72-73-69) were co-champions with two-under 214, the first-ever individuals to finish the tournament under par.
“She played smart, strategic golf, leaving herself with easy putts all three days,” says Head Coach Christa Teno. “She took advantage of all the scoring holes and made great decisions on the tough holes, staying away from the big number. She is the hardest worker on the team. It is a huge confidence booster.”
