FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (April 11, 2018) – North Carolina A&T women’s golf got another close look at their competition for the PGA Minority Golf Championships in May. While the result wasn’t to their liking, it wasn’t all bad either.

N.C. A&T finished second, 30 strokes behind Alabama State, at the National Women’s Collegiate Golf Championships on Wednesday at the par-72, 5,925-yard Whitewater Creek Golf Course.  

N.C. A&T coach Richard Watkins considers Alabama State as a formidable adversary along with Bethune-Cookman for the women’s minority title when the golf tournament comes to Port St. Lucie, Fla., May 10-13. N.C. A&T (677) finished ahead of Texas Southern (691), Savannah State (700) and Hampton (727) to round out the top-5 at National Women’s Collegiate Golf Championships.

The Aggies trailed the Hornets by 18 strokes after the first day of competition as junior Bo Young Park shot 39 on the front nine and 38 on the back to lead the Aggies with a 5-over 77. She was only one stroke behind ASU’s Chanelle Avaricio for the tournament lead. It was unfortunate Day 2 for Park because Avaricio did not have a stellar second round. Avaricio won the tournament by shooting a second-round 79.

But Park finished in a second-place tie with ASU’s Jade McAlister after shooting a second-round 83, one of the few rounds Park has shot in the 80’s this season. Park was plus-16 for the tournament and earned all-tournament honors along with senior Sofia Alvarez. Alvarez was tied for fourth after her first round 10-over 82.

Alvarez found herself alone in fourth place for the tournament after firing off a 7-over 79 on the second day. Her round was tied for low round of the day along with Avaricio and Savannah State’s Rachele Orme. The Aggies other top-10 finish came from Madison Harriman who finished eighth after back-to-back 83’s gave her a two-round 22-over 166.

Where the Aggies can find solace in finishing second to the Hornets is in the fact they played without senior Jill Harvison who was out with an injury.

“We’re going to need better play from our No. 4 and 5 golfers,” said Watkins. “We did not have Jill available this week, and we did not do a good job of making up for her absence.”

N.C. A&T will go after the unofficial Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference women’s golfing title April 26-27 in Savannah, Ga., at the MEAC Invitational.
