Hawkins, Einstein impact freshmen in Big South

A

TRIAD COLLEGIATE CHECKLIST

By STEVE WILLIAMS

year ago, Emily Hawkins and Brandon Einstein were wrapping up their high school days while being ranked among the top junior golfers in North Carolina. The transition to collegiate play has been seamless for the talented Triad pair as they lead their respective teams in scoring heading into the Big South conference tournaments. Hawkins, of Lexington, has been Campbell’s medalist in four of eight events and has a collegiate victory on her freshman resume when she fired a final-round 67 to climb into a share first place in the Palmetto Intercollegiate last October. After two more top 5 finishes in March tournaments, where she posted four rounds of 69 or better, Hawkins is now averaging a team-best 71.2. The Camels have finished no worse than fourth as a team in any of their eight events with a pair of seconds and two thirds this spring. Upcoming April 12-14 is the Big South Conference Championship at The Patriot Golf Club in Ninety Six, S.C. Campbell has won the event the last three years and five out of the last seven. An automatic berth to the NCAA Regional goes to the winner. Meanwhile, High Point’s men finished third in the Big South a year ago despite a medalist performance by Brendan MacDougall. With Einstein now in the lineup with the junior MacDougall, the Panthers will be looking to move up from their third-place finish a year ago. Liberty and Campbell are the league’s top-ranked teams. The men will also play The Patriot Golf Club, teeing it up a week after the women. Einstein, of Clemmons, won the North Carolina Junior last summer but also was a force against the state’s best men. He finished second at the North Carolina Amateur and tied for fourth in the Carolinas Amateur. At High Point, Einstein has posted nine rounds of par or better while averaging 72.4. He notched his best finish at the Wexford Plantation Intercollegiate in late February as he placed second in the 95-player field with 2-under-par 213. He began the final round in seventh place but fired a 68, cashing in four birdies over his final seven holes. He ended just one shot off the pace of Brad Bawden of Memphis. 14
