PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. — Campbell successfully defended its overall team championship at the Golfweek Program Challenge Sept. 9-11 at True Blue Plantation and Caledonia Golf and Fish Club in Pawleys Island, S.C.
But while the Camels needed a playoff to defeat East Carolina for the title last season, Campbell won in convincing fashion in its second appearance at the event.
The Camels captured the women’s title by 40 shots over second-place Central Arkansas, which won the men’s title by two strokes over runner-up Jacksonville State. Campbell finished eighth on the men’s side, 16 shots back, but it was enough for the Camels to win the overall championship by 24 shots over Central Arkansas.
Campbell sophomore Brooke Bellomy and James Madison sophomore Trey Smith claimed their first collegiate individual titles. Bellomy shot 2-under 211 to beat Julia Roth of Central Arkansas by three shots. She led a Campbell squad that had all five players in the top 7. Smith shot 11-under 205 and won by two strokes over Austen Moix of Central Arkansas.
