WINTER PARK, Fla. (April 13, 2019) – With the regular season in the books, Rollins women's golf next heads to the 2019 Sunshine State Conference Championship, April 14-16.
Lake Jovita Golf and Country Club in Dade City will be the host venue for the sixth time in tournament history. Rollins has won three of its record eighth SSC Championships at Lake Jovita; 2001, 2005 and most recently in 2006.
"We are excited to play in the Conference Championship at Lake Jovita," said Rollins head coach and Director of Golf Julie Garner. "It's a top notch venue that will test every club in your bag."
The 2019 Tars head into the weekend ranked No. 16 in both the WGCA Division II Coaches Poll and GolfStat rankings. The most loaded field among the nation's conference tournaments, the SSC championship features eight teams ranked in the WGCA Coaches Poll. Top-ranked Barry, No. 3 Nova Southeastern and No. 5 Florida Tech headline the teams. Eighth-ranked Lynn, No. 11 Florida Southern and No. 12 Saint Leo are ranked ahead of Rollins with No. 19 Tampa just behind.
Seher Atwal leads the Tars on the season, posting a 73.00 stroke average over 20 rounds. The junior has finished in the top-10 four times, including a victory at the Lady Moc Classic to start the spring season. She sat out the Harvard Invitational to close the regular season, battling an injury.
"Seher's foot injury is healing slowly so we are hopeful she will be able to grind out 54 holes and continue the great play she has shown this season," added Garner. "The team has been working toward this time of year and we look forward to the challenge of a competitive championship."
Rollins is playing with Tampa and Embry-Riddle on the first day, teeing off at 8:30 on the first hole. Fans can follow the action with live scoring at GolfStat.com.
