GREENSBORO – North Carolina A&T completed the Aggie Invitational on Tuesday at the par-72, 5,928-yard Bryan Park golf course.
The Aggie Invitational is a match-play event. The Aggies played Appalachian State on Tuesday and lost to the Mountaineers, 3-2.
“I think that everybody that participated enjoyed it,” head coach Richard Watkins said. “The golf tournament went off perfectly. We had a little rain yesterday, but that didn’t deter anybody. “We lost 3-2 against App State with the last match still on the course and the match still in jeopardy. I think the girls did a good job. We knew that there was enough parody in the field that one little mistake, a missed putt here and a miss shot here, could be the difference in the match.”
“It was definitely a battle,” Rogers said. “That’s the best way to describe both days. That was my biggest take from this tournament. It’s okay if you miss a shot here or there; it’s how you recover and try to get that little white ball in the hole as quick as possible.
The Aggies, Oct. 26-27, in the UMES Collegiate Golf Championship hosted by Maryland Eastern Shore in Princess Anne, Md.
