The final day of the NJCAA National Championship tournament in Daytona Beach, Florida saw TC3's Rasmita Taylert (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg) shoot an 88 to finish the three rounds with a score of 264. Once against on Thursday, Taylert started quickly with a 41 on the front side, playing even better than her score indicated. However, on the back nine the heat caught up with her leading to a 47.
"The difference was some missed short putts and several bad breaks that come with a tough course. The tees were back and pin locations were brutal," said Craig Tucker, TC3 associate head golf coach. "I know she was disappointed after starting so strong, but she showed she can keep up with the heavyweights of junior college golf. She was hitting the ball right at her target and her course management was fantastic most of the day."

TC3's Rasmita Taylert (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg) fired an 86 Wednesday to post a two-day score of 176 at the NJCAA National Championship tournament in Daytona Beach, Florida. She stands tied for 38th overall, good enough to make the cut for the final round of play.
Associate Head Coach Craig Tucker said Taylert's play was solid Wednesday. "Raz was striking the ball great all day but a couple of holes cost her a fantastic round. The course is fantastic championship venue and consequently has a lot of risk/reward holes. Raz shook off her opening day jitters and started quickly going out in 41. Her great ball striking constantly put her in situations to make some aggressive choices and go right at the pin. She did very well with the swirling winds and tough pins that made club choices and course management very difficult."
The tournament, which is being shortened to 54 holes due to wild fires nearby, ends Thursday.
