Women's college golf team of the week: College of Charleston

0

When the 2019-20 college golf season was canceled last March, College of Charleston was playing a practice round at the Golf Club at Briar’s Creek in Johns Island, South Carolina. A year later, the team claimed the victory there, winning the Briar’s Creek Invitational by one shot of Miami, a top-20 team in the nation, when graduate senior Victoria Huskey sank a birdie putt on her final hole.

The Cougars finished 54 holes at 9-over 873 on March 16 and topped several Power 5 teams, including Maryland, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Minnesota and Illinois. It was head coach Jamie Futtrell’s 31st career win, which ties for 13th all-time among active Division I coaches.

Before winning at Briar’s Creek, the Cougars had finished runner-up at the Kiawah Island Classic.

“Last year, COVID made us stop (our spring season) here,” said Futrell. “To come back, and win this golf tournament a year later, is just unbelievable for us. We beat a lot of great teams. This is the biggest win we’ve ever had in the history of our program. Briar’s Creek is also such a special place. To do it in front of our sponsors and friends, it couldn’t be a better place to win.”
