College of Charleston was the only team in the Colonial Athletic Association Championship to shoot a round in the 280s. They did it twice in a row en route to a seven-stroke victory over runner-up Towson at the St. James Plantation's Founders Club in Southport, N.C.

“What a win for our program and The College,” said Charleston head coach Mark McEntire in a release. “Congrats to our players on our first CAA men’s championship in school history.

College of Charleston was led by John Jonas and William Rainer, who finished second and third, respectively. The team shot an even-par 288 on the final day, beating out Towson, which was tied for first after 36 holes.

Towson (17 over), William & Mary (24 over), UNC-Wilmington (25 over) and James Madison (40 over) made up the top five of the event.
