Schaeffner makes NCAAs; Lady Chants just miss cut

ccuwgolf-schaffner2015Coastal Carolina women’s golf junior Lena Schaeffner has advanced to the NCAA National Championships, contested May 22-27 at The Concessions Club in Bradenton, Fla., by virtue of her second-place finish at the NCAA Raleigh Regional.

The Chanticleers placed ninth in the 18-team Regional with a 903 54-hole score, missing advancing to the National Championship by 11 strokes.

Coastal looked to be in position to advance to the National Championship through nine holes, but woes on the Chanticleers’ back nine ended the team’s 2014-15 campaign that featured a Big South Championship and a school-record four tournament wins.

The Chants played the front nine, a combined 10-over and were within two strokes of the field’s top six teams. However, Coastal’s four counters combined to shoot 11 over on the second nine, relegating them to a 310 team score and a ninth-place finish on the team leaderboard. Coastal also finished ahead of five teams ranked in Golfstat’s top-50.

Second-ranked South Carolina claimed the Regional title with a 13-over 877. No. 15 Northwestern finished second with a 21-over, 885 score. Joining the Gamecocks and Wildcats in at the NCAA Championship are No. 42 and host NC State (887, +23), No. 31 Alabama (888, +24), No. 7 LSU (888, +24) and Campbell (892, +28).

Schaeffner, who tied a CCU NCAA Regional-record with a 2-under 214 (73-70-71), becomes the first Chanticleer individual to advance to the NCAA National Championship (the team advanced in 2011). Her final Regional round featured six birdies and seven pars en route to her 1-under 71 tally.

Malene Krolboll Hansen (78-72-79) and Frida Castillo (75-74-80) tied for 48th with matching 229 three-round scores. Bailey Cocca finished tied for 59th with a 231 (77-74-80) score, while Emee Herbert placed 91, posting a 249 (78-88-83) total.
