On Tuesday, April 22nd, after their victory at Lonnie Poole Golf Course - the Caps knew they had clinched the Conference Championship....but on Thursday, April 24th the Caps showed up to Wildwood Green Golf Club to complete an undefeated CAP8 Conference season and collect their hardware.
Veteran players Harrison Rhoades and Court Settle led the team to victory - Rhoades firing a four under par 31 and Settle shooting a one under 34 - John Hogan shot a 36 and Jimbo Stanley shot a 38 to close out Broughton's scoring. And on Senior day - Kirkland Caison, John Hogan, Jack Nelms and Court Settle played the final conference match of their CAP8 careers - it was a special afternoon.
To further sweeten the day Preyer Fountain, Will Minton, Harrison Rhoades and Stephen Saleeby made All-Conference.
...And finishing the season as the number 1 golfer in the CAP8 Conference with the lowest scoring average in conference play - Preyer Fountain was named Player of the Year - the first Broughton golfer to earn that honor since Webb Simpson.
After a couple of non-conference matches this week the Caps go on to Regionals at Raleigh Country Club the first week of May where they will make sure they are ready to take on their opponents and play their way to States.
