FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – In search of its third consecutive Sunshine State Conference championship, and fourth NCAA Division II national title this decade, the Nova Southeastern women’s golf team is set to tee off its anticipated spring season on Feb. 3 at the World Golf Invitational, hosted by Flagler.
Following a highly impressive 2017-18 campaign in which they collected eight tournament victories, the Sharks picked up right where they left off with two wins in just four events this past fall. Head coach Heather Wall‘s group beat out a heavy Division I field to capture the Jacksonville Classic before rolling to a 12-shot victory at its very own Shark Invitational in the second week of October. In the midst of all the team success, All-American Sophie Madden rose all the way to No. 1 in the player rankings thanks to a pair of individual wins, and will look to carry Nova Southeastern once again this spring with a roster that features just two seniors.
The Sharks will compete in five regular season tournaments overall this season, following up the World Golf Invitational with a trip to Lakeland, Fla. for the Lady Moc Classic on Feb. 18-19. After hanging around Central Florida throughout February, Nova Southeastern will head cross-country in mid-March for the Cal State San Marcos Women’s Invitational, held at Shadowridge Golf Club. Two weeks later, the Sharks will make their way to Miami Lakes for the Barry Invitational, with the regular season slate set to wrap up at the Argonaut Invitational on Apr. 1-2.
Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club in Saint Leo, Fla. will be the host site for the 2019 SSC Championship from Apr. 14-16. The NCAA South Super Regional will be played out from May 6-8 in Cleveland, Tenn., while the 2019 national champion will be decided nearby at PGA National Golf Club throughout May 15-18.
