N.C. A&T’s newest athletics program has already competed in four tournaments with two players shooting in the 70’s thus far. Therefore, Harriman’s addition will only enhance the youthful program.
“The first thing I wanted to do was to have enough quality golfers to not only have a team but to have a team that was going to competitive the first year,” said Watkins who has five golfers on his roster. “Now we’re starting to enter the phase where I want enough golfers to make people have to compete for the opportunity to travel to each tournament. Madison is going to be a great addition to our team, and she is going to make others raise their level of play on the golf course. That’s a good thing.”
Harriman is one of best high school golfers in North Carolina. As a junior, she finished tied for 47th at the Class 4A state championships. This past October she improved that standing by finishing 27th by shooting a 23-over par 167 at Pinehurst No. 5. She was among the top qualifiers coming out of the 4A Central region.
She shot a season-low 33 (nine holes) at the Southwest Guilford Tri-Match on Sept. 7. She matched that with a 33 on Sept. 12. She shot a 75 at the Piedmont Triad Conference 18-hole Final Match, one stroke behind medalist Madison Isaacson of Ragsdale.
