Seminole State College of Florida's women's golfers finished fourth in the NJCAA Women's Golf Championship, held May 16-19 at LPGA International in Daytona Beach.

Freshman Elia Folch Sola led the team, scoring 303 in four rounds and finishing in sixth place overall. The Barcelona, Spain, native earned All-American honors and an automatic bid to next year's tournament.

Also competing for the Raiders were freshmen Lauren Shuford, Caitlin Winters and Kiley Mettler, who all finished in the top 30 individually. Shuford, of Brooksville, finished in 18th place and earned All-Tournament honors with a score of 324. Winters, of Lake Mary, and Mettler, of Horseshoe Bend, Ark., finished tied for 28th with a score of 339.

Seminole State had a final team score of 1,305, just 17 strokes shy of a top-three finish. Defending national champion Daytona State College won the tournament with a score of 1,195.

The National Junior College Athletic Association Championship drew 20 teams and 33 individual competitors from across the country. Seminole State was the only four-member team to finish in the top five. Other top-performing teams had five members apiece and were able to drop their highest score for each round.

In four seasons, Seminole State has made three team appearances at nationals. Last year, the Raiders finished sixth.
