KETTERING, Ohio – Led by a record-setting three days from 17-year-old Alice Chen, New Jersey captured a three-stroke victory over Florida at the 2013 USGA Women’s State Team Championship, conducted at the par-73, 6,153-yard South Course at NCR Country Club. It is the state’s first victory in the 10-year championship history, besting a previous high of seventh in 2011.
“To be in this position right now was not even in my scope of reference,” said New Jersey’s playing captain Tara Fleming, 46, of Jersey City. “These young ladies are such great players and it's just a thrill to be in their company.”
