WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - After leading UNCW to its first Colonial Athletic Association men's golf title since 2013, interim head coach Daniel Bowden was named the CAA Coach of the Year.

UNCW senior Patrick Cover and sophomore Blake McShea were named first-team All-CAA after finishing in the top five at the conference tournament in Raleigh in late April.

The Seahawks' win ended the College of Charleston's four-year run as CAA tournament champions.

UNCW will find out Wednesday which regional it will compete in when the NCAA tournament selection show takes place at 5:30 p.m. on The Golf Channel.
