Dallas Baptist, an NCAA Division II school, teed it up in last week’s 41-team Kiawah Island Classic for the first time and took home the title. The best part? DBU was the only non-Division I team in the field.
The Patriots were in second place after 18 holes on Kiawah Island’s Cougar Point course, and blindly took that game to the Oak Point course. DBU had never seen that golf course before, but the team went 11 under and effectively put 18 shots between themselves and the rest of the field that day before finishing it of the next day at Cougar Point. DBU was 1 over for the tournament.
“The girls started well, so I thought that was important with a big lead – to make sure we got off to a good start so it kind of left no doubt that no one had a chance to catch us,” DBU head coach Kenny Trapp said of the final round. “On the back nine, we just stayed with it, just shot to shot.”
