ETSU earned its 21st Southern Conference Championship on April 20 after going wire-to-wire in Greensboro, Ga. for the 26th overall conference title in program history. The Bucs were led at the SoCon Championship by the league’s Freshman/Player of the Year, Archie Davies (Carlisle, England). Davies claimed his first collegiate title with a score of 9-under-par (207). The England product became the first ETSU freshman to win the individual medalist honors at the conference championship since Seamus Power did so at the 2007 ASUN Championship.
