No. 2 Women’s Golf Stages Huge Comeback to Advance to National Championships

The No. 2 Nova Southeastern University women’s golf team posted their best round on Tuesday, May 5 to finish off a remarkable comeback at the NCAA Super South Regional, leaping from sixth to third and advancing to the DII National Championships, while freshman Mailen Domecq Chantry earned co-medalist honors among individuals.

The Sharks finished at 45-over as a team, and their Tuesday score of 301 tied for the second-best among the nine squads competing. Domecq Chantry (Fr., Mar del Plata, Argentina) was the final Shark in the clubhouse after birdieing 18 to put her in second place at that point, while also drawing the team closer but still not yet in third.

At that time, NSU was still two shots behind Florida Tech for third place, but as a team over each player’s last three holes, FIT shot 5-over, allowing the Sharks to leapfrog them and advance. Meanwhile, at the completion of her round, Domecq Chantry trailed Lynn’s Jessica Bradley, but it ended up that she and Annie Dulman of Rollins would tie at the end of regulation, and share the top spot on the leaderboard.

Over her 54 holes, Domecq Chantry shot a 217 (70-72-75) for her second individual win of the season. Carding the best score for the Sharks during the final 18 holes was Jamie Freedman (Fr., Miami Beach, Fla.), even for the second straight round and earning a 16th-place finish at 226 (82-72-72).

Emily-Mae Hall (Fr., Nottinghamshire, England) and Daniela Ortiz (Sr., Morelia, Mexico) each totaled a 234 to tie for 34th. They had round breakdowns of 76-80-78 and 78-80-76, respectively. As she did on Monday, Liliana Cammisa (Sr., Alta Gracia, Argentina) posted a 78 and finished with a total of 241.

Rollins took the team title at 884, with Lynn as runners-up with a 900, also advancing along with NSU. Florida Tech ended up a shot behind the Sharks, with Saint Leo a stroke behind them in fifth. Rounding out the team standings were Barry and West Florida, tying for sixth, Flagler in eighth and Florida Southern ninth.

Behind Domecq Chantry and Dulman was Brittany LaPadula of Limestone at 218, while Bradley and Lexie Toth of Rollins tied fifth at 219. LaPadula, Florida Tech’s Guro Rambjoer and Nicole Ferre of Barry advance to the National Championships as individuals. Those will begin on May 13 at The Meadows in Allendale, Michigan. Stay tuned for coverage of the four-day event.
