The University of North Florida women’s golf team combined for a solid back-nine performance on Monday to capture their second Atlantic Sun Conference title in a row, at the Chateau Elan Resort Legends Course in Braselton, Ga.

 

The four players whose scores counted to the team title combined for only three bogeys after the turn and the Ospreys went on to post a team score of 22-over to beat Florida Gulf Coast by seven shots. Kennesaw (34 over) was third and Jacksonville (52 over) was fourth.

UNF qualified for the NCAA tournament. The Ospreys won the A-Sun for the first time last year.

Freshman Sydney Shrader (73) finished third overall for UNF a 4-over-par 220, one shot out of playoff involving Megan Blonien of Gulf Coast and Samanthan Griffin of Lipscomb. Shrader was 1-under on the back nine, with no bogeys.

David Wicks (72), Raul Pereda (70) and Sam Uhland (71) all tied for eighth at 1-over-par 217 to lead JU. Ryan Jahn (70) finished one shot behind in 11th.
