Women's Golf - Mon, May 29, 2017

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Sophomore Sarah Son made history for the No. 16 Milligan College women's golf team on Friday. By earning a spot in the top 40 through the second round, Son became the first individual in Milligan women's golf history to qualify for the final round of the NAIA Women's Golf National Championship. She then carded a 78 over the final round to finish the national event in 26th place.

The event was marred by heavy rain, yet Son still managed to sign cards of 83 and 77 over the first two rounds. They helped her earn a spot at 32nd individually when the field was cut to 17 teams and 40 individuals on Thursday. While Son made the cut by one stroke, Milligan missed it by five strokes as a team. The Buffs would have had another chance to improve their standing, but rain forced the cancelation of Thursday's round and the cut was made a round early. Milligan finished 19th as a team with a two-day combined score of 669 (335-334).

Son, who was named to the Appalachian Athletic Conference All-Conference second team in 2016 and 2017, was 4 over par through the first nine holes on Friday and closed out her season with a +2 over the last nine holes. She was only one over par over the last seven holes.

In the team competition, Milligan placed 19th, while SCAD Atlanta wrapped up the tournament 13th overall with a three-round score of 982. Bria Sanders led SCAD Atlanta as she tied for 49th with a score of 242.
