WHITE LAKE, N.C. – On the second hole of a sudden death playoff Coker’s Trey Bridwell sank an eight-foot putt for birdie to capture individual medalist honors, carding a three-under-par 69 at the 2008 Carolina Sands Intercollegiate hosted by UNC Pembroke as the Cobras captured the tournament title at the Carolina Sands Golf Club on Sunday.

Lenoir-Rhyne’s Kent George carded a 69 to tie for first place individually but lost on the second hole of the playoff, shooting par on the par-3 No. 2 hole on the Carolina Sands front side.

Coker’s Christopher Marsh (70) and Jimmy Gillam (71) also finished under-par at the 6,925-yard, par-72 course on Sunday helping lead the Cobras to a team total of 286 on the day. Fayetteville State finished in second place with a 294, one stroke ahead of third place Carson-Newman (295). Catawba finished a stroke behind Carson-Newman at 296 and Tusculum rounded out the top-five finishers with a 297.

“Despite getting cut short a round this year’s Carolina Sands was very exciting,” said UNCP head coach David Synan. “With second place through fourth place finishing one stroke behind the other it proved to be a very competitive field. Add the playoff between Bridwell and George to make this event a memorable one.”

Marsh tied for third place along side Steven Brame of Cape Fear Community College with each shooting 70 on the day. Allen Tuttle of Catawba, Laurence Noott of Pfeiffer, Tyler Lane of Carson-Newman, Ian Milne of Fayetteville State, Billy Belair of Lander, Gillam of Coker, and Jonathan Greene of Mount Olive each shot 71 to tie for fifth place.

UNCP finished 12th in the team competition shooting a 312 on the day. Mathew Morrison and Matthew Montford each carded a round of 76 to tie for 32nd at the event. Nick Dial tied for 51st with a 79, Taylor Ferguson tied for 66th with an 81 and Andy Case shot an 84 to tied for 78th to round out the Braves competitors.

This weekend was the final tune up for the Braves with only the Peach Belt Conference Championship hosted by USC Aiken on April 20-22.
