UNCW men's golf team off to NCAA Regional in Texas

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The UNCW men's golf team is headed to Texas.

The Colonial Athletic Association champion Seahawks will play in an NCAA Regional May 14-16 at the Traditions Club in Bryan, Texas.

"This is an exciting day for the program," said UNCW interim head coach Daniel Bowden. "The team has been a resilient bunch, working hard to position themselves to win a tournament every time out."

Bowden was named interim head coach in August 2017 after longtime head coach Matt Clark joined the staff at North Carolina.

The Seahawks are the 11 seed in the regional. It's their eighth appearance in an NCAA Regional.
