ABAC golf team finishes eighth in district championship

TIFTON — The golf team at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College wound up the year with an 8th place finish in the National Junior College Athletic Association District 4 Championship in Albany at Stonebridge Country Club.

On the first day of play, the Stallion golfers had a score of 311, followed by a second day score of 292, and a final day score of 321 for a total of 924 for the tournament. 

Darton State College won the championship with a score of 895.  Eleven colleges from the southern part of the United States participated in the district championship.  The Stallions played in the district tournament as a result of their second place finish in the NJCAA Region XVII tournament earlier this month.

Two of the ABAC golfers finished in the top 20 in the district tournament standings.  Chris Rogers of Dawson, who was the captain of the ABAC team, finished in 15th place, and Clay Degler from Greenville finished 20th.

ABAC Coach Jimmy Ballenger said fall golf practice begins on Aug. 1.
