Conover, N.C. – Southern Wesleyan finishes in fourteenth place in the Southeast Region Preview with an overall score of 603.

 

Tournament Vitals

Round One: 310

Round Two: 293

Team Total: 603

 

Coach Maxon says...

"I don't feel like our score reflected how we played this week.  With two Freshman making their debuts and by far the youngest team in the event, we got better as the tournament went on.  At this point it is clear that we are going to rely heavily on our younger guys and our success will be determined by how quickly they can improve.  Overall a positive week heading into Nationals in a couple weeks."
