Consistency carried the Virginia State University menís golf team to a season-opening victory in the Trojan Fall Classic at Dogwood Trace Golf Course in Petersburg on Tuesday.
The host team churned out consecutive scores of 317 for an overall mark of 634, overcoming a three-stroke Day 1 deficit to Fayetteville State to win by five. The Broncos finished with an overall score of 639 (314, 325), good enough for a second-place finish amongst Division II competition.
Former Prince George High School standouts Aaron Bryant and Dalton Jolly carded qualifying scores for the Trojans, and Bryantís stellar two-day showing earned him a spot on the all-tournament team.
VSU freshman Walter Smith III also garnered all-tournament recognition by posting the joint lowest round of the event, a three-over 75, on Day 2.
Bryant, a junior, was a microcosm of the Trojansí consistency. He carded a team-low 76 on Day 1 and equaled Smithís 75 on Day 2.
Jolly, a sophomore, pitched in with an 83 on the second day to help solidify the victory.
Virginia Union finished third in the D-II bracket with a two-day score of 644 (325, 319), followed by St Augustineís (653), Chowan (669) and Elizabeth City State (738), respectively.
A Division I tournament also was held. Savannah State prevailed in that bracket, edging North Carolina Central with a team score of 603 (299, 304).
