Feb. 5, 2009




KOHALA COAST, Hawaii –
Junior Cameron Knight shot a one over par 73 and is in a tie for 24th place in the individual standings after the first round of the 19th Annual University of Hawaii – Hilo Intercollegiate at the Mauna Lani Resort North Course. The Seminoles are in 15th place in the team standings with two rounds and 36 holes remaining to be played.

Only three teams broke par during the first round led by No. 11 ranked Washington – the overall team leader – which shot a seven under par score of 281. The Huskies are followed by No. 2 ranked Southern California and Oregon. The Seminoles are one of two ACC schools participating in the event along with Georgia Tech.

Knight led the Seminoles through the first round and was one of only 34 golfers in the first round to finish the first 18 holes at one-over par or better. He closed his final nine holes at two-under par.

“I am proud of Cameron’s overall performance,” said head coach Trey Jones. “The wind blew exceptionally hard late in the day and we did a miserable job of finding a way to compete with the course. I was, though, proud of our attitudes and effort and feel that we prepared well heading into the event.”

Round two begins at 12:30 p.m. Eastern time Thursday.
