Raider women’s golf to host home tournament

The Lady Raiders will play host to six other golf teams from around the country at the inaugural Magnolia Spring Break Classic.

The Seminole State College of Florida women’s golf team will stay home over spring break, co-hosting six other squads at its first-ever home event, the inaugural Magnolia Spring Break Classic.

Spectators are invited and encouraged to attend the Magnolia Spring Break Classic, which will take place March 4-6 at Magnolia Plantation Golf Club in Lake Mary and feature a field of seven teams from around the country.

“We’re hoping this is the beginning of a long tradition,” says Christa Teno, head coach of the Lady Raiders. “As it grows in stature and number of teams, hopefully the community can get behind it. It’s going to be a great event.”

Seminole State, who closed last year as runner-up at the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) national championship tournament, is the lone NJCAA squad in the field. Other teams compete in NCAA Division I. Teno hopes the tournament will catch on as an attractive annual option for teams around the country, because it will give Raider golfers a chance to make positive impressions on four-year schools.

“This tournament gives schools up north a chance to come down to Florida for a break from the cold, and it gives our girls at Seminole State some extra looks from Division I schools around the country,” Teno says. “When their careers as Raiders are over, they can use those connections to help them reach the next level.”

Other colleges participating in the Magnolia Spring Break Classic include: Florida Atlantic University, University of Detroit Mercy (UDM), Jackson State University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, Niagara University and Saint Francis University.

The Magnolia Spring Break Classic is the first of two consecutive tournaments in Central Florida co-hosted by Seminole State and UDM. The Sunshine Spring Classic will take place March 9-11 in Orlando.
