Women's golf captures UIndy's first national championship

UIndy’s women’s golf team posted a title-winning performance at the 2015 NCAA Division II Championships in Allendale, Mich. Led by senior Chanice Young, the Greyhounds notched a five-stroke win in the year’s biggest tournament, securing the school’s first-ever team national championship.

UIndy maintained the lead through all four rounds. After earning a one-shot edge after 18 holes, the Hounds’ lead ballooned to 16 strokes after the second round before slimming a bit to 11 after the third. During Saturday’s final round, runner-up Rollins College made a hard charge with a team score of 293 – the lowest of the event – but UIndy held off the Tars with a solid 299 to win by five strokes.

Since Division II began holding its own national championship in 2000, UIndy is the only school to win the title that did not hail from the state of Florida. This year, the Greyhounds represented the only school in the top six not from Florida or Texas.
