DeHaven leads UIndy golfers to DII title

Seymour High School 2014 graduate Paxton DeHaven, and the University of Indianapolis women’s golf team claimed their first-ever NCAA Division II national championship Saturday.

DeHaven shot two over on the final day and finished with scores of 79-75-81-74.

The Greyhounds held a lead Wednesday through Saturday at The Meadows Golf Course in Allendale, Michigan, to claim the title.

Holding onto a one-shot edge after 18 holes, the Hounds’ lead grew to 16 strokes after the second round before slimming to 11 after the third.

During Saturday’s final round, runner-up Rollins College made a hard charge with a team score of 293 — the lowest of the event — but the Greyhoudns held off the Tars with 299 to win by five strokes.
