No 1. Men’s Golf Takes Second at SSC Tournament; Celia Receives Medalist Honors


Celia Ricardo


The No.1 Nova Southeastern men’s golf team, after leading through the first two rounds at the 2013 Sunshine State Conference Golf Championship at Dade City’s Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club, fell by one-stroke in the final round to claim second. The men shot a -4 (288-281-291—860).

The Sharks were ahead by three-strokes heading into the final round but were unable to maintain their gap over Barry, who took the top spot by one-stroke, shooting a -5 (290-282-287—859). NSU carded a +3 (291), which was their only team round shot over-par.

The consistent daily team battle made for an exciting tournament but individually for the Sharks, Ricardo Celia (So., Barranquilla, Columbia) stole the show.  Celia captured the top spot on the first day and maintained the lead throughout the entire tournament, shooting a +7 (69-70-70—209) to capture the individual victory.
