COLUMBIA, SC – The Emmanuel College men's golf team travelled to Columbia, South Carolina on March 18th and 19th to compete in the 2019 North Greenville Invitational at Columbia Country Club.
The invitational was won by Catawba College, while the Lions finished tied for 9th place.
The Lions were led by senior Erik Sundstrom, who carded a final round 76 to finished tied for 22nd place while celebrating his 23rd birthday. Sundstrom used his Swedish strength to overcome the less than stellar conditions and post a respectable number in his last regular season event as a Lion. The rest of the team struggled to score in the cold, swirling wind.
The Lions now have a three week break before post season play begins at the 2019 Conference Carolina's Men's Golf Championship in Snow Hill, North Carolina. The Championship will take place April 14-16 in Emmanuel's first ever year of post season eligibility.
