TOJANS RUN AWAY WITH CHAMPIONSHIP

FORT LEE, VA – Virginia State University shot and 18-over 594 as a team to run away with the 2013 CIAA Golf Championship held at The Cardinal Golf Club in Fort Lee, Va.

The VSU Trojans finished with a two day total of 594 (+18), while the Hawks of Chowan University finished in second with a total of 628 (+52). Virginia Union was third with a tow day total of 638 (+62), and defending champion, Fayetteville State (648, +72), finished a distant fourth, 54 shots behind the VSU Trojans.

Coaches, players and fans were treated to some wonderful golf, as the student-athletes produced some great shots and even better scores on the final day of competition.

Virginia State’s win was team dominant, as they placed six golfers within eight shots of the lead with Aaron Bryant (71-74-145) leading the way finishing second, and Omari Howard (74-73-147) finishing in third place.
