Women's golf gets second No. 1 tournament finish

Jisu Choi led the way as Seminole State placed No. 1 at the Bash at the Beach.

April is only halfway over, but it has already been a great month for Seminole State College’s women’s golf team, recently voted the No. 4 team in the nation.

The Raiders capped off an impressive performance at the Embry-Riddle Bash at the Beach tournament April 14-15 with their second No. 1 finish of the semester. Three Raider golfers placed in the top two individual slots, with freshman Jisu Choi garnering top honors and freshman Erika Wardzinski and All-American sophomore Elia Folch tying for second.

Seminole State ballooned a six-stroke lead on day one into a 15-stroke victory by the tournament’s end. Nearly every Raider golfer improved her score from the tournament’s first day, with Joanna Yoo knocking 10 strokes off her day one total, as they collectively went 308-304 for a two-day stroke count of 612.

Host college Embry-Riddle snagged second place with a total of 627, 15 strokes behind the Raiders.

Seminole State will be back in action April 27-28 at the NJCAA Region VIII Qualifier at Sugar Mill Country Club in New Smyrna Beach. To view the complete golf schedule, visit the women’s golf website.

The Raiders were voted the No. 4 team in the country in the first National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Top 20 National Poll of the season, released on April 5.
