DAYTONA BEACH, Florida - Twelve teams will be playing in the prestigious 2019 Babs Steffens Hatter Collegiate hosted by Stetson University. Eleven of those teams will be from four-year universities. The Raiders will enjoy a practice round on Saturday. On Sunday the field will play 36 holes and Monday will wrap up with a mere 18 hole day.
Last year, SSC finished second out of the 12 team field, Tai Anudit finished in a T5 individually (Erica Chiang lost in a playoff for the medalist spot). In 2017, the Raiders finished sixth out of 11 teams. The previous two years the tournament was held in Deland. Stetson has moved the event to the LPGA International Hills Course. This location provides one more opportunity to play at the site of the NJCAA Championships (May 13-16).
"The team hasn't been playing well of late, so we'll see who will step up," commented Coach Teno. "We need to be able to grind out some good scores, even if we aren't playing our best golf." Teno named the scoring five: Tai Anudit, Alex Giles, Sophia Warren, Nicole Stewart and Sam Brimhall. Maria Cowan will compete as an individual.
Live Scoring will be available through Golfstat.com
