North Florida barely missed the mark with the team only two spots away from advancing to the NCAA Nationals.

Even though the Ospreys finished seventh, sophomore Travis Trace became the first UNF golfer to qualify individually for the NCAA Championship Tournament.

The first day of the tournament UNF finished fourth out of 13. At the end of day one, sophomore Philip Knowles and Dillon Woods, a redshirt junior, were both tied for tenth place at 69.

Trace and teammate Andrew Alligood also played well finishing at par and one above par. The Ospreys completed day one at 279, only trailing the number one slot by eight strokes.

North Florida fell one spot on the leaderboard after day two. The Ospreys still finished in the top five, knotted with BYU at 560 strokes. Trace led UNF with 138, giving him shared possession of the eight spot. This round became Trace’s twelfth round of the season under par.

The Ospreys continued to slide down the rankings and finished the tournament at seventh.

But there was a bright spot,by the end of day three, Trace had secured the tenth place slot and made UNF history. The sophomore became the first UNF golfer to qualify individually for the NCAA Championship Tournament after finishing on par.

North Florida finished just two spots outside of the top five, ending their season.

Trace will continue to compete individually for a national championship from May 26-31 in Sugar Grove, Il.
