2012-13 UNCW Virtual Guide

WILMINGTON, North Carolina - Head Coach Matt Clark and his Seahawks captured their third consecutive Colonial Athletic Association with an impressive 24-stroke victory over runner-up James Madison. Overall this will be the fourth consecutive trip for the men’s golf program after earning an at-large bid in 2009-10 before running off their string of three CAA titles.

UNCW Dominates CAA Honors
Junior Payne McLeod was named CAA Golfer-of-the-Year and also earned first-team All-CAA honors as UNCW landed four golfers on the conference’s all-star squads.
Joining McLeod on the first team was senior Thomas Bass, who earned All-CAA honors for the third time.
Junior Stefan Brewer and Josh Woodfox were voted second-team All-CAA.
McLeod’s Golfer-of-the-Year honor marked the third time in as many years that a Seahawks won the league’s top accolade. McLeod joined former Seahawks Chris Buffaloe (1993), Sean Dougherty (2001), Josh Brock (2011) and Thomas Bass (2012) as UNCW CAA Player-of-the-Year award winners.
