Golf Teams Shine at Nationals -  

Three Golfers Named All-American


The e-mail messages were flying furiously, embellished with many exclamation points, as Coach Mike Cook and Assistant Coach Nicole Wildes tracked the action of their all-freshmen teams for the College and local media during the national NJCAA golf  tournaments last week.


Christian Liggin finished 14th with a 321 total, earning All-American status by placing in the top 15 at the women's nationals. Chase Miller finished 10th in the men's individual competition with a 290 total and Shiloh Snow garnered honorable mention with a 293 total.


Wildes traveled to Daytona Beach with Shea Able, Jaclyn Harten, Liggin and Colbi Tyre for the women's competition May 17-19. The women played from 6,130 yards on the LPGA International Golf Course. Coastal Georgia finished 6th in a field of 18 teams.


Cook and team members Dylan Freeman, Miller, Garrett Newman, Snow, and Hunter Stuckey were in Scottsboro, Alabama, May 17-20 for the NJCAA D II National Men's Championship. Nineteen teams played the par 72, 7160-yard Goose Pond Colony Golf Course. Coastal Georgia wrapped up fourth place after Miller made a hole-in-one on the last day of the tournament. Miller also won the NJCAA long driving contest May 17 with a 333-yard drive.
