No. 14 Blinn Women’s Golf Heads To Nationals For The First Time In Program History

The 14th-ranked Blinn College women’s golf team enters the NJCAA Women’s Golf Championship for the first time in program history.

The Buccaneers placed second in the Region XIV tournament to earn their berth to nationals. The tournament will take place Monday through Thursday, May 10-13, at Plantation Bay Golf and Country Club in Ormond Beach, Fla.

“I am excited for this team to be the first to earn a berth to the national tournament,” head coach David Johnson said. “They are a great group of young women to work with, have bought into the team aspect of golf, and really care for each other greatly. They have all improved their skill sets over the spring.”

The tournament will consist of 19 teams and each team will play one round of 18 holes each day. The top 18 finishers at the national championship will be honored as All-Americans.

“It has been an honor to coach these girls and watch them grow throughout the semester,” assistant coach Katie Johnston said. “The girls gave it their very best, never gave up, and their drive to get better earned them a berth to the national championship. The team chemistry for this group is incredible, and it has been amazing to watch them grow into a family.”

Fans and spectators are permitted with no cost of admission. Merchandise is available at www.teamip.com/njcaa. Tournament updates will be posted at www.njcaa.org/sports/wgolf/2020-21/national_championship/index.

Blinn has competed in intercollegiate athletics since 1903 and captured 42 NJCAA national championships since 1987.
