Marion, IL - Cape Fear men's golf capped off a strong 2018-19 season by claiming the Region 10 Championship. The win secures the team a spot in the National Tournament held in Melbourne, Florida.
The Sea Devils competed in the Region 10/District 4 Championship on April 22nd and 23rd, finishing 5th out of 13 team with a three round score of 937. Because they finished with a lower score than any other team out of Region 10, they were crowned conference champions.
Brantley Moore led Cape Fear by finishing tied for 12th overall. He played particularly well in the first two rounds, finishing with scores of 74 and 75, respectively.
Ryan Graybar finished just behind Moore tied for 14th place. After a solid Round 1 score of 76, Graybar struggled in Round 2. However, he rebounded on the final day, posting a team best score of 71.
While Cape Fear sealed their conference win with this tournament finished, they paved the way through their performances this spring. Including the District 4 Championship, the Sea Devils had six Top 5 finishes, including two tournament wins. After such a turbulent Fall 2018 season due to Hurricane Florence, the Spring 2019 season was a success.
Three CFCC players were named to the All-Region Team -- Moore, Graybar, and Morgan with Moore also being named Region 10 Medalist. Head coach Rick Stewart, meanwhile, was named Region 10 Coach of the Year.
The Division I National tournament will take place on May 14th-17th. It will be held at The Duran Golf Club in Melbourne, Florida.
