LAURINBURG — The Scotland Christian Academy golf team won the Carolina’s Christian Athletic Association Championship earlier this week at Lakewood Golf Club in Salemburg.

Eighth grader Braden Cline and freshman Micah Dean paced the Saints to victory over Columbus Christian Academy out of Whiteville, Mintz Christian Academy out of Roseboro, and Berean Baptist Academy out of Fayetteville, in the unseasonably hot weather on Monday.

Cline led the Saints and the rest of the 19-golfer field shooting a nine-hole 43 to finish seven-over par. Dean finished third in the tournament shooting a 10-over-par 46 for his round.

The Saints duo were named to the CCAA All-Conference team.
