OC women 3rd, OC men 4th at NCCAA golf championships
PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. – The Oklahoma Christian University women’s golf team earned its second-straight top-three national finish with a third-place showing at the National Christian College Athletic Association Invitational.
Anna Arrese Cortadellas placed third individually to earn All-America honors for the second straight year. It was the 21st time in as many collegiate tournaments she has posted a top-10 finish.
“Anna continues her string,” Coach Greg Lynn said. “She just is extremely talented and a great golfer. She’s got a great future in golf. The rest of the girls played pretty good. I think it bodes well for the future of our program.”

The OC men, seeking to defend their 2012 NCCAA title, placed fourth overall. It was the 15th straight year the Eagles finished in the top four of a national tournament.
Sam Johnston was the individual runner-up for the second straight year.
Coach David Lynn, while disappointed, chose to focus on the positives of a fall season that included two wins, one runnerup finish in an NCAA Division II tournament, and one third-place finish against strong competition.
“We’ve gotten accustomed to competing to try to win and have had a lot of top finishes,” Lynn said. “That’s good for the program and that’s great for the school. We’re honored to represent Oklahoma Christian and the guys did a good job of that. They’re a great group of kids.”
