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.”

The Raiders return to the green on March 14, in Lake Mary, for the Seminole State Spring Break Invitational at the Timacuan Golf Club.

All Raider home events are free for Seminole State students, faculty and staff with a valid Seminole State ID. Admission is also available to the general public for a small fee. For more information, and to view the Raiders' complete season schedule and results, visit the Athletics home page
