Buc Nation
The Bucs are coming off their first tournament of the spring campaign, having finished 8th in the 2021 Southwestern Invitational on Wednesday, Jan. 27. ETSU will be sending four individuals to Statesboro, Ga. that did not make the trip to California for the spring opener. Ben Carberry (Bonnybridge, Scotland) will be making his ETSU debut this weekend, while Campbell Wolf (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) will compete in his second event of the season. Wolf finished T-21st in the Scenic City Collegiate to open the fall campaign. Austin Carter (Kingsport, Tenn.) will be making his season debut for the Bucs. Joining the trio of Buccaneers will be fellow teammate Sam Espinosa (Pedrena, Spain) who competed in the Maridoe Invitational (Oct. 18-20, 2020).

Carter and Espinosa competed in Georgia Southern’s individual tournament last season with Espinosa securing a 9th-place finish for his first career Top-10 finish, while Carter finished 25th for his best finish of the season.
