Sydney Abbott secured a spot in the NCCAA National Championships on Saturday for Grace College’s women’s golf team.
The Lady Lancers finished second in the regional tournament behind Indiana Wesleyan, scoring 652 compared to 642 for IWU.
While IWU earned the automatic bid as a team to NCCAA Nationals, Grace still has a chance as an at-large invitee and will find out in October.
Abbott becomes the third Lady Lancer to reach the national tournament in only the program’s third year of existence. She follows Lauren Keiser (2015) and Anna Marshall (2016) as national tournament participants.
“I really could not be prouder of our effort. Kristin Holt had a breakout round today as a freshman, and Sydney was rock-solid for the two rounds,” said Grace head coach Denny Duncan. “We are still the youngest team in the Crossroads League, but we are getting better each week.” — from gclancers.com
