SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Chiara Tamburlini earned her first point of the week for Ole Miss on Wednesday in the final of the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship against Oklahoma State.
It opened the floodgates to a national championship, the first women’s title in school history.
Tamburlini’s 6 and 5 win was the largest margin of victory in the women’s final.
A few minutes later, fifth-year senior Kennedy Swann earned the Rebels their second point with a 2 and 1 win over Maja Stark. Swann’s win pushed her career match-play mark to 10-2.
Then it was Ole Miss sophomore Andrea Lignell, who played 40 holes over the quarterfinals and semifinals on Tuesday, draining a five-footer on the 17th hole to clinch the win.
Oklahoma State, which knocked out defending national champion Duke with a 5-0 showing in the semifinals on Tuesday, was also attempting to win the first women’s title in school history.
