Women’s Golf Makes it Back-to-Back Titles at Hoya Invitational

The NSU women’s golf team defended their title at the Hoya Invitational, which was played March 30-31 at The Members Club at Four Streams in Beallsville, Md.

The Sharks (612) came out on top of the field of 17 teams after shooting a 15-over par 303 in the first round and a 21-over par 309 in the second round. Maryland (616) finished four strokes back in second place while Campbell (635) and Rollins (635) tied for third place, 23 strokes behind.

Junior All-American Sandra Changkija turned in another outstanding performance, capturing her fifth victory of the season. She fired an even par 72 to take the lead in the first round and carded the low round of the tournament with a one-under par 71 in the second round. Changkija defeated Jessie Hollandsworth of Maryland by four strokes and teammate Maria Garcia-Austt by eight strokes.

Junior Nicole Whitmore tied for 12th place (158) while Fredrika Hakansson made it four Sharks in the top 20 with a 17th place finish (160). Freshman Abbey Gittings tied for 39th place (165).

The win is the No. 1 ranked Sharks’ sixth in eight tournaments this year.

NSU will host the Sunshine State Conference Golf Championships from Apr. 18-20 at Grande Oaks Golf Club in Davie.
