from and Head Coach Chris Jones will have more on the Northern Guilford Nighthawk Golf Championship details later on this evening, but here is what we have so far on the Northern Guilford title….


FOXFIRE VILLAGE –Hickory’s J.T. Posten carded a 74 on Tuesday to go with an opening round four-under par 68 to capture the individual championship in the 25th annual North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 3-A men’s golf championships at the Foxfire Golf and Country Club.

Posten, who was seventh in last year’s 3-A tournament, had a 142 total to hold off a surging Zack Lewis of Southern Lee, who fired a 68 on Tuesday to finish four shots back. Southern Lee’s Jack Radley and Philip Linder of Foard were tied for third at 148.

The championship was held on a par-72, 6600-yard layout for the NCHSAA event.

Northern Guilford won a playoff on the scorecard using the score of the fifth golfer after Northern and Gastonia Forestview finished knotted at 608, after Forestview put together a great 295 team score on Tuesday. Hickory, the defending team champion, placed third with a 614, six shots back, while Fred T. Foard was fourth.

The best four of six individual scores count toward the team total.

Prior to 1986, all NCHSAA schools competed for a single title in an open tournament. Play went to three classifications in 1986 and then to four classes beginning with the 1998 tournaments.

A total of 84 golfers participated in the two-day event.

Wendy’s is the presenting sponsor of the NCHSAA sports program.

    Great job by the Nighthawks golfers and Coach Jones. Great to see the seniors Castegnet and Fry finish off their high school careers in a solid fashion. They have a strong group of under classmen which bodes well for the future. NG needs to do something special for this group of state champions!
