The men’s golf team is looking to win the National Association for Intercollegiate Athletics National Championship for the second year in a row.
“We haven’t been playing our best, but we are progressively getting better and just being more consistent,” Senior Matthew Cheung said.
The team includes two freshmen, which is a big deal since a golf team consists of five players, Cheung said.
OCU’s team is ranked No. 1 in the country for golf, according to ocusports.com.
Freshman Peri’Don Castille is ranked No. 1 in the NAIA League and Cheung was in the top five individually.
Golf is a team sport with players ranked individually as well as the whole team.
The team took runner-up in the Patriot Classic on April 3 in Irving, Texas. Their next competition is the Sooner Athletic Conference Championships on April 24-25 at the Gaillardia Country Club in Oklahoma City.
“As a senior, I’m just really proud of the way our team continues to get better and grow throughout the year, and I’m just really looking forward to heading into this post-season with them,” Cheung said.
