MANSFIELD, OH -- The 2019 NCAC Women’s Golf Championships concluded on Sunday at the par-72, 5,800-yard Westbrook C.C. in Mansfield, Ohio. The DePauw Tigers won their league-leading fifth NCAC women’s golf title with a 36-hole score of 649 (329-320), while the Wittenberg Tigers finished second overall with a 653 (328-325). The 2019 Championship was shortened from 54 holes to 36 after weather forced the cancellation of Friday's round. As NCAC champions, DePauw has earned the league’s automatic bid into the 2019 NCAA Division III Women’s Golf Championships, which will be contested at the Bay Oaks Country Club in Houston, TX, May 14-17.

DePauw and Wittenberg were followed in the team standings by Denison in third with 679 strokes (332-347), Wooster in fourth with a 704 (349-355), Ohio Wesleyan in fifth with 711 (358-353) and Allegheny in sixth with 742 strokes (365-377). 

DePauw senior Larisa Luloff (Cary, IL/Cary-Grove) was the women’s overall medalist over the course of the championship tournament with a 10-over par 36-hole score of 154 (77-77). Luloff was also named the 2019 NCAC Women’s Golfer of the Year by vote of the league coaches. DePauw freshman Emily Balding (Brookfield, WI/Brookfield Central) earned the 2019 NCAC Women’s Golf Newcomer of the Year honor as the top finisher in the individual standings in their first year of collegiate competition after she finished the two-day event with a score of 175 (86-89), which landed her on the All-NCAC honorable mention team.
