One day, THREE conference title wins for Seahawks

This weekend was a historic weekend at UNC Wilmington.  For the first time in school history, the men and women won Colonial Athletic Association championships in the same year for golf.  A few hours later our men's tennis team also upset the top-seeded VCU Rams to win another CAA Conference title.

The UNCW men's golf team entered the tournament with a to 50 national ranking.  This win was their first since 2005 and will now land them a spot in the NCAA Regional next month.  The women's golf team entered the tournament a bit behind the men ranked only 117 in the Golfweek rankings, but third in the CAA.  This win was unexpected for them, but still well deserved.  This was the first women's CAA Conference title since 2008.

A few hours after after the excitement on the golf course, the attention quickly turned to the tennis courts.  UNCW's men's tennis team won a dramatic 4-3 victory over Virginia Commonwealth.  This victory will send UNCW to the NCAA tournament on May 3.
