The Northern Guilford menâ€™s golf team will be participating in the 2010 3A NCHSAA menâ€™s golf championship at Foxfire Villageâ€™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.

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 weekâ€™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.
