Seminole State's women's golfers finished sixth in the National Junior College Athletic Association's (NJCAA) Women's Golf Championship, held May 18-20 at LPGA International Golf Club in Daytona Beach.

Sophomore Fabys Barreto led the team, scoring 236 in three rounds and finishing in a 14th-place overall tie. She also had the week's only hole-in-one — a 168-yard six iron on hole 15 — and earned All-American Honorable Mention for her performance.

Also competing for the Raiders were Victoria Seenath, Jessica Wolchick and Kristin Galek, who all finished in the top 50 individually. Seenath, a sophomore, came in 38th with a score of 254; Wolchick, a sophomore, finished tied for 42nd with a score of 260; and Galek, a freshman, came in tied for 47th with a score of 261.

Seminole State had a final team score of 1,011, just 11 strokes shy of a top-five finish. Daytona State College, who turned in two of the lowest scoring rounds in NJCAA history, clinched the championship with a score of 869.

The tournament, originally scheduled to begin Monday, May 17, was shortened from four rounds to three after heavy rains delayed tee off. Twenty teams and more than 115 golfers competed, representing community and state colleges around the country.

Last year, Seminole State finished third at nationals in a single-round, winner-take-all battle that was also marred by bad weather.
