Trojan Men’s Golf Gets First Win
The Trojan Golf Team got its first win in a non-conference match versus an unlikely opponent. La Roche College of Pittsburg, PA needed an opponent for its Spring Break trip to the North Carolina to meet NCAA rules. Coach Jim Tinkey found FTCC Coach John Michael Cole online and he set the match at Tobacco Road Golf Course in Sanford, one of the courses he had selected for his team to play during their week in NC. La Roche College is an NCAA, D-III member.
The Trojans posted their best team score of the Spring season and won 319-330 over the Red Hawks. Once again, the Trojans were led by Freshman Austin Sandford, 74. Tyler Fox, of Pine Forest, posted a season best 79. Trey Strickland, of Jack Britt, worked his way into the top five for the Trojans and posted his season best, 83, matching teammate Zach Johnson, of Cape Fear. Andrew Harmon of Pine Forest rounded out the Trojans with an 88.
Trojans: Sandford, 74, Fox, 79, Strickland, 83, Johnson, 83, Team Total 319
Red Hawks: David Wilson, Tyler Booher, Kordell Collins, Drake Holbrook, Harrison Thatcher, 80, 85, 84, 81, Team Total 330
