April 5, 2019 – The Davidson County Community College Storm golf team will be hosting its first competitive tournament at the Winding Creek Golf Course on April 8 and 9. The tournament will host players from Johnston Community College, Central Carolina Community College and Richard Bland College.
Community members are invited to serve as spectators between 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to cheer on the DCCC Storm. The golf course can be found at 72 Winding Creek Road in Thomasville.
“We have been grinding all semester long on our game in every aspect,” head coach Kendall Dunn said. “The players have really come a long way but we still have work to do. We are working now on getting better at the little things physically and mentally, any edge we can get on the competition.”
This is Coach Dunn’s first year heading the team. Dunn played collegiately at both UNC Pembroke and Guilford College. His previous coaching experience includes head golf coach for Greensboro Day School.
DCCC students Will Goins, Bryce Hedgecock and Brooke Lewis will represent the DCCC Storm during the tournament.
Will Goins is currently pursuing his Associate of Applied Science degree in Business Administration. Goins is a 2017 West Davidson High School graduate. During his high school career, he was part of two straight county and conference championship teams for golf. His senior year included three medalist wins, first team all-conference honors and first team all-county honors.
Bryce Hedgecock is also pursuing his Associate of Applied Science degree in Business Administration. Hedgecock graduated from East Davidson High School in 2017, where he played golf all four years. He was named to the All-Conference team in the Central Carolina Conference twice in his final two years, and won Medalist honors on multiple occasions.
Rounding out the team is Brooke Lewis, who is pursuing her Associate in Arts degree in Elementary Education. A 2018 graduate of Ledford High School, Lewis was involved in softball, color guard and dance. She is also a winner of the Miss North Carolina Pageant Door. Golf has been a life-long pursuit for Lewis.
“We are coming down the home stretch and I like our chance to qualify for nationals,” Dunn said.
This is the first year of the DCCC Storm golf team. Recruitment is still ongoing for players. For more information on joining the team, visit DavidsonCCC.edu/Athletics.
