1986 NCAA Champions
May 28-31, Ohio State University - Columbus, Ohio
It wasn't as easy as the year before, but UF took home the NCAA Championship trophy for a second straight year, matching Miami's back-to-back national titles in 1977-78. To add icing to the cake, Florida junior Page Dunlap claimed the individual crown with a one-stroke victory over New Mexico's Caroline Keggi and Michelle Estill of Arizona State.
Florida fell three strokes behind intra-state rival Miami after the opening round, but moved into a tie with the Hurricanes after the second day and took a five-stroke edge into the final round. UF struggled on the front nine during the last day, but regrouped on the back nine to post an eight-stroke victory over the Hurricanes.
