Edmondson Wins Medalist Honors At CCI
Sept. 28, 2010
GOLDSBORO, N.C. -- East Carolina sophomore Zach Edmondson won his first collegiate tournament as he claimed individual medalist honors Tuesday at the CenturyLink Collegiate Invitational at Lane Tree Golf Club by two strokes.
The first 18 holes of the tournament was postponed Monday because of heavy rainfall (six inches at the course), so players rode 36 holes in carts on Tuesday. The course played to a par 72 at 6,912 yards.
Edmondson opened play Tuesday morning by shooting a three-under 69 and was tied for the individual lead after the first round with Barton's Daniel Castleberry. Edmondson fired a two-under 70 in the second round while Castleberry carded a one-over 73 and finished fourth.
Edmondson won the tournament with a 36-hole score of five-under 139 finishing two strokes in front of Post University's David McGregor (72-69=141) and Cape Fear Community College's Colby Averitte (73-68=141).
A trio of Pirates made their ECU debut Tuesday. Freshman Jack Keefe (75-75=150) finished tied for 25th at six-over with redshirt freshman Jackson Stuckey (74-78=152) tied for 30th at eight-over. Fellow rookie Sam Packard (76-77=153) tied for 34th-place at nine over.
