SALISBURY, N.C.—The Barry women’s golf team fell one place shy of advancing to the NCAA Division II National Tournament, but junior Isadora Stapff survived a two-hole playoff to become the third Buccaneer to advance as an individual on Tuesday.
 
The Bucs, who entered the day tied with Rollins for the third and final position, shot a 313, while the Tars fired a 291 to advance.
 
Top-ranked Nova Southeastern won the tournament with an 890 (304-302-284), while fourth-ranked Florida Southern finished nine strokes back at 899 (304-303-292).
 
Rollins’ Joanna Coe claimed the individual medal with a -1 (72-71-69—212).
 
Four players tied at 226 (13-over-par) and it took two holes to decide the three to advance. All four pared the opening hole then Newberry’s Maria Luz Besio claimed her spot with a birdie on the second hole. Carley Warrington, of Belmont Abbey, was able to get up and down for a par, while Barry’s Isadora Stapff two-putted for her par to advance. Barry's Lizzi Over hit a fairway bunker off the tee and missed a par putt eliminating her.
 
Stapff joins RemiJin Camping (2005) and Johanna Stewart (2008) as the only Buccaneers to advance to the nationals as individuals. The team finished second in 2002 in their only trip to the finals.
 
The national tournament is May 12-15 at Longbow Golf Club in Mesa, Ariz.
