Meanwhile, Daniela Iacobelli of Florida Tech earned individual medalist honors.”This was a great championship, and it means everything to us and our school,” said Florida Southern head coach Robbie Davis. “I’m thrilled to death because we worked so hard to win the prize.”After not qualifying as a team at last year’s national championships, Florida Southern claimed their 26th national championship in school history. The win also ended Rollins streak of four consecutive national championships.Despite shooting over 300 for the first time on Saturday, Florida Southern finished with a 36-over 1,188. Second-ranked Rollins made a late push in the final round, shaving five strokes off of the Florida Southern lead. The Tars finished second with a 46-over 1,198.

She finished the tournament with a five-over 293 (72-74-73-74).”It was very challenging because it was just me without the support of my teammates,” said Iacobelli. “After my round, I was pacing the clubhouse and preparing for a possible playoff by practicing on the putting green. The course was nice, but it was hard when it was hot. The greens were tricky and the pin placement was difficult.Another individual, Maria Garcia Austt of Nova Southeastern finished second with a six-over 294 (71-79-70-74). A pair of Florida Southern golfers earned the third and fourth positions. Lindsey Bergeon finished at seven-over 295 (72-74-74-75), while teammate Heather Burgner carded an eight-over 296 (75-72-74-75).
