DAYTONA BEACH, Florida - Coach Teno was not impressed with the way the team performed in the opening two rounds of the Lady Falcon Invite. There were bright spots in Friday's 36 hole day. Freshman Ranida Inpan was sitting on the edge of a top 10 placement and overall the Raiders had adapted to the windy conditions to play 36 holes on a day scheduled for 18. Still, Seminole was in fourth place and a stroke behind Daytona State.
Saturday's Final Round proved to be more like Raider Golf. SSC shot a 302, second best on the day by 8 strokes (over third) and moved up to third place overall. NCAA Division II powers Tampa finished first (912) and Florida Southern (913) finished second.
The Raiders will head to Jacksonville on September 29th for the Bubba Burger JU Classic at Marsh Landing Country Club.
