Nova Southeastern grabs second national title

CONOVER, N.C. -- No. 1 Nova Southeastern took home its second NCAA Division II National Championship, defeating Lynn 3-2 on Friday afternoon at Rock Barn Golf and Spa.

The Sharks took each of the first two points on the strength of two freshmen coming up huge in their postseason debuts. Ethan Marcus got the first tally as his 2-over 73 defeated Keith Greene by two strokes, and Priyanshu Singh won his matchup against Martin Cancino by three shots to bring the team within one to clinch.

Though Lynn took the next point, with Mateo Gomez topping Oscar Lengdèn, the Sharks earned the championship in the fourth matchup, as Santiago Gomez tapped in a par putt on the final hole to defeat Jose Andres Miranda by a solitary shot after a 2-over 73 round.

That made the fifth slot inconsequential, won by Lynn's Elliott Whitley against the Sharks' Richard Mansell. With the victory, the Sharks notched their seventh national team title in history, and 20th overall (including individuals).
