Lady Raiders eye spring after strong fall finish

Julia McQuilken

Seminole State College of Florida’s women’s golf team wrapped up its fall schedule with some positive momentum, finishing No. 3 at the Flagler Fall Slam in St. Augustine.

The Lady Raiders have improved their team score in each of the last three tournaments, and Head Coach Christa Teno expects that trend to continue as the focus shifts to the spring season.

“We sometimes played average [during the fall], but we are far from average,” says Raider Head Coach Christa Teno. “Each player had a battle. No one was on cruise control this semester, but we accomplished so much in the fall.”

The Lady Raiders’ two-day stroke count of 625 (313-312) at the Flagler Fall Slam placed them just behind Barry University and host Flagler College. The Raiders’ score was enough to hold off Armstrong Atlantic University, Saint Leo University and the University of West Florida, all four-year NCAA Division II programs.

Emerging sophomore Julia McQuilken, of Riverview, led the Lady Raiders with an individual two-day stroke count of 151 (77-74), good for her first top-10 finish at a tournament. Sophomore Chanya Angwarawong, of Thailand, finished second for the Raiders and tied for 12th overall with a two-day total of 154 (80-74).

The tournament ran Oct. 27-29 and featured a field of 79 individuals on 14 teams, representing colleges and universities from around the Southeast.

The Lady Raiders played four tournaments during the Fall Term in preparation for spring play. The team total of 625 represents Seminole State’s best score for a two-day tournament during the fall season, and the third-place finish puts the team in good position to build on its success during the spring.

“The best is yet to come,” Teno says. “I’m very excited for next semester.”

Seminole State will open the spring season in February at the Florida Southern Invitational in Lakeland and will participate in four tournaments leading up to the postseason.
