Wake Tech Golfer to Play for UNC-P
Scott Colley is Among the Top Junior College Golfers in the Country
RALEIGH, N.C. (June 21, 2010) - Wake Tech golfer Scott Colley will transfer and play golf at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke this fall. A star player on the inaugural Wake Tech golf team, Colley tied for 6th place in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division 1 Championship in Huntsville, Alabama in May. He also earned second team All-American, a first for any Wake Tech athlete.
WTCC Golf Coach Andrew Wilkinson says he's not surprised to see Colley recruited by a UNC System school. "Scott is a great player," says Wilkinson. "I know he'll be successful at UNC-P and I look forward to following his career as he one day reaches his goal of playing on the PGA Tour!"
Colley is a 2004 graduate of Fuquay-Varina High School. He plans to major in accounting at UNC-P, and would eventually like to get a master's degree in economics. He credits the Wake Tech golf program with inspiring him, both athletically and academically. "Playing golf at Wake Tech opened a lot of doors for me," he says. "Getting the chance now to play at the next level is going to be awesome!"
Wake Tech's golf program started in the spring of 2009 and won first place in the NJCAA Division 1, Region X in its inaugural season. This year, the team finished 2nd in the region and 14th in the nation. More information can be found at http://athletics.waketech.edu.
