2019 NJCAA Women's Golf Championship May 13-16, 2019 | LPGA International | Daytona Beach, FL

Seminole State wins second women's golf championship

The Seminole State College of Florida women's golf team led wire-to-wire at the 2019 NJCAA Women's Golf Championship, winning the second national title in women's golf program history.

The Raiders posted the best score in each of the three rounds played. After posting a 300 in the opening round, Seminole State posted the only sub-300 round of the championship with a 297 on Wednesday to establish a comfortable 16-stroke lead heading into the final day of action. There the Raiders were able to cruise to the title behind All-American performances from all five golfers.

With the result, Seminole State snapped Daytona State's streak of three consecutive championships, preventing the Falcons from winning their NJCAA-best 11th title.

The first day was a scratch due to late morning thunderstorms that rolled into the Daytona Beach area.

That forced the tournament to move from a standard 72-hole format, to a 56-hole structure. It was the third time in the last five years that a tournament had to be altered due to weather.

Florida schools continued their stronghold on the NJCAA Women's Golf Championship.

Daytona State and Seminole State have finished 1-2 in each of the last five championships. In that time, Daytona State have won three titles, while Seminole State just claimed its second Thursday.

Worapitcha Anudit finished as the individual champion this year after posting a three-round total of 213, completing all three rounds either at even or under par.

Seminole State's top golfer finished fourth a year ago in Mesa, AZ- good for first team All-American honors.

After finishing her NJCAA career, Anudit will now move on to Kennesaw State of the Atlantic Sun Conference.

Worapitcha Anudit and Hollie Muse finished their NJCAA careers Thursday with the rare feat of becoming two-time first team All-Americans.

A year ago in Mesa, AZ, Anudit finished in fourth while Muse ended in sixth, the last spot in the first team list. Both golfers moved up a few spots on the individual leaderboard this year.

Along with the two-time NJCAA All-American status gained by Anudit and Muse, Alison Crenshaw (Daytona State) and Samantha Brimhall (Seminole State), and Kiana Oshiro earned their second All-American honor of their NJCAA career.
