The College of Charleston men’s golf team captured its third Colonial Athletic Conference championship in a row on Sunday, April 24, 2016, at the Founders Club at St. James Plantation in Southport, North Carolina.
The Cougars finished the championship with a three-round score of 869, which was 22 strokes better than runner-up James Madison University. The College’s victory honored the golf team’s late teammate, Jackson Moore, who died earlier this season.
“Today summed up our entire year – adversity,” Cougars Head Coach Mark McEntire said. “We got off to a rough start and just kept grinding. I am so proud of this team. They deserve this championship. We played our hearts out and played for Jack (Moore). We got great rounds today from Parker Derby and William Rainey. We needed them to step up and they delivered.”
