BLOG: Charlotte 49ers golf in the spotlight

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Quick props to the Charlotte 49ers golf team. They've been great in the past, but this year they won their very first NCAA regional and advanced as one of the top 30 teams in the nation to play in the NCAA Division One Golf Championships in Bradenton, Florida.

They had problems all weekend with rain at the event, but were able to finish play this morning.

The team did not finish in the Top 15 and did not advance to the next round, but they did represent and make the area proud.

Riley Davenport did not win the individual competition, but he was on the leaderboard Monday afternoon and got some TV time on the Golf Channel.

Way to go guys! Bigger and better next year!
