Golf Digest Profiles No. 1 Women’s Golf Team


L to R – Head coach Amanda Brown with Claudia Wolf, Abbey Gittings, Daniela Ortiz and Liliana Cammisa.


On Friday, Mar. 16, Golf Digest’s Stephen Hennessey wrote a profile on the No. 1 Nova Southeastern women’s golf team. The article describes the Sharks’ search for a fourth straight NCAA National Championship despite only having a roster of four golfers. Below is an excerpt from Hennessey’s article.

No. 1 Nova Southeastern Doing Fine With Four

Amanda Brown‘s not looking for any sympathy.

The first-year women’s coach at Nova Southeastern has three of the five top ranked players in Division II, including No. 1 Abbey Gittings and No. 2 Daniela Ortiz. No other team has more than one in the top 10. They’re also the three-time defending NCAA Division II champs, and are currently ranked atop the Golf World/NGCA Women’s Division II rankings.

But Brown’s first year at the helm became more challenging in recent months when her roster shrunk to just four golfers. Chelsey Herbert, a freshman from Wales who was the fifth starter for the Sharks, decided not to return to campus after the winter break.
