WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – The UNCW Men’s Golf Team has withdrawn from the upcoming Colonial Athletic Association Championship because of COVID-19 protocols inside the program.
The tournament is scheduled for St. Helena Island in South Carolina from April 25 to 27th.
The UNCW Women’s Golf Team also had to pull out of its CAA Tournament for similar COVID-19 reasons.
The Seahawks were coming off a first-place finish in the Irish Creek Intercollegiate earlier this month in Kannapolis. Freshman Sander Akeren took home individual first place honors by a huge ten-shot margin, helping the team cruise to a 16-stroke victory over second-place Virginia Commonwealth University, its second tournament win of the season.
