Harriman Signs With A&T Golf
GREENSBORO (November 22, 2016) – North Carolina A&T golf coach Richard Watkins continued his quest of building depth for the women’s golf team on Tuesday when he announced the signing of Madison Harriman (High Point, N.C., Southwest Guilford).
N.C. A&T’s newest athletics program has already competed in four tournaments with two players shooting in the 70’s thus far. Therefore, Harriman’s addition will only enhance the youthful program.
“The first thing I wanted to do was to have enough quality golfers to not only have a team but to have a team that was going to competitive the first year,” said Watkins who has five golfers on his roster. “Now we’re starting to enter the phase where I want enough golfers to make people have to compete for the opportunity to travel to each tournament. Madison is going to be a great addition to our team, and she is going to make others raise their level of play on the golf course. That’s a good thing.”
Harriman is one of best high school golfers in North Carolina. As a junior, she finished tied for 47th at the Class 4A state championships. This past October she improved that standing by finishing 27th by shooting a 23-over par 167 at Pinehurst No. 5. She was among the top qualifiers coming out of the 4A Central region.
She shot a season-low 33 (nine holes) at the Southwest Guilford Tri-Match on Sept. 7. She matched that with a 33 on Sept. 12. She shot a 75 at the Piedmont Triad Conference 18-hole Final Match, one stroke behind medalist Madison Isaacson of Ragsdale.
