The Northern Guilford men’s golf team will be participating in the 2010 3A NCHSAA men’s golf championship at Foxfire Village’s East Course in Pinehurst. The 36-hole, two-day competition, begins Monday, May 10 at 8 am, and will conclude on Tuesday.

This will be the first-ever appearance for the Nighthawks in the state tournament.

The Nighthawks advanced to the state championship by virtue of a second place finish at last week’s Mideast Regional at Indian Valley Golf Course in Burlington. Northern’s 18-hole team score of 311, was 13 strokes behind Cardinal Gibbons who won the regional with a 298 team score.

Sophomore Colin McKenna, who recorded a school record one-under par 69 in the Mid State Conference Tournament, paced the Nighthawks with a five-over par 75 in last week’s regional.

The 12-team tournament field is as follows: Charlotte Catholic, Cardinal Gibbons, Forestview, Hickory, Fred T. Foard, Wilson Fike, West Carteret, Northern Guilford, Ledford, Marvin Ridge, Southern Wayne and Statesville.
