PRINCESS ANNE, Maryland – Over the weekend the Maryland Eastern Shore men’s golf team competed in the National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame tournament at Heritage Golf Links in Tucker, Georgia, just outside Atlanta. The Hawks finished eighth in the 18 team field, made up exclusively of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

Just as it was at the opening tournament at Hampton, Hawks senior Demarkis Cooper (Clinton, Maryland) led the way with a 78-74—152 to finish 29th in the field of 95 golfers. Right behind him was sophomore Young Lee (Mount Airy, Maryland) with a 75-78—153 to finish tied for 30th.

Senior Darius Davis (Atlanta, Georgia) made a statement in his hometown with an opening round of 77 to help the cause, while senior Blair Waters (Jacksonville, Florida) enjoyed a fantastic second day with a 74. Waters ended the weekend with a 159, and Davis ended one stroke behind at 160.

Fellow MEAC institution Bethune-Cookman took home the team and a shared individual title, with the Wildcats’ Connor O’Brien shooting even with a 70-72—142 tying Prairie View A&M’s Laurence Crea and his 68-74—142.



The Shore takes next weekend off from tournament play before hosting the Maryland Eastern Shore Collegiate Golf Challenge at the Ocean City Golf Club from October 16th through the 18th.
