Nova Southeastern Women’s Golf Ends Championship Streak & Takes Second at NCAA National Championship

Noah Goldman, Amanda Brown, Liliana Cammisa, Rachel Lewis, Abbey Gittings, Daniela Ortiz, and Linea Johnasson.

The No. 1 NSU women’s golf team finished second at the 2013 NCAA Division II National Championship, breaking their streak of national titles Saturday at LPGA International. The Sharks finished with a score of 1190 (292-294-295-309), three strokes behind No. 2 Lynn in an upset loss.

The second-place finish snaps the greatest run of any sport in NSU athletics history. The Sharks had previously won four-straight NCAA National Championships and three-straight individual NCAA titles. The NSU women’s golf dynasty was aided by several talented golfers over the years, including professionals Sandra Changkija, Taylor Collins and graduating senior Abbey Gittings (Tamworth, England), who competed in four-straight title races.
