Led by first-year Head Coach Dirk Fennie The Pride won two tournaments this Spring: Pine Needles and Emory. GC carries a 300.7 stroke average and is the only team to defeat top-ranked Methodist this year.

Individually, junior Brock Elder (Greensboro, NC/Vandalia Christian) and sophomore Ben Nihart (Winston-Salem, NC/(home school)) have led The Pride. Elder has a 74.1 stroke average and Nihart is close behind with a 74.7.

The championships will be held May 11-14, at the Hershey Links and Hershey Country Club, in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The championships will be hosted by Elizabethtown College.
