Women’s golf claims first NCAA team title

women's golf champsThe UIndy women’s golf team led all four rounds of last week’s 2015 NCAA Division II Championships and came home with a national title — a first for the program and also the first team national championship in Greyhound athletics history.

Senior Chanice Young of Evansville tied for fifth individually and led the Hounds to a five-stroke victory in the tournament, which took place Wednesday through Saturday at The Meadows Golf Course in Allendale, Mich.

“I am so lucky to coach this group,” head coach Brent Nicoson said.  “They have been relentless in their pursuit to get better, and that has now paid off with four consecutive conference titles, four consecutive NCAA regionals, and now a national championship.”
