Flyers Bring Home the Eagle's Cup

Brady Childers and Koby Markham were co-leaders for the Sandhills Community College men's golf team that won the Eagle's Cup at Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Garner on Saturday and Sunday.

Childers posted scores of 77-76-153 and Markham shot 75-78-153. All five Flyers contributed to the winning team score of 307-311-618, including Chris Kraft, 80-76-156, Hunter Oxendine, 75-82-157 and Trent Waitley 82-81-163.

Fayetteville Tech finished second with a 36-hole total of 623 and host Wake Tech was third with a 630 total. Frankie Lin of a Richard Bland College squad that had only three players earned medalist honors after rounds of 73-74-147.

"The course was tough due to windy conditions," Sandhills coach Gus Ulrich said. "But the guys played steady and were able to hold on Sunday."

Next for the Flyers is the Region X Championship this Saturday and Sunday. The first round will be played at Sanford Golf Club and second at the Country Club of Whispering Pine.
