Golfweek Touts 49ers

As junior Corey Nagy noted, the 49ers had their backs to the walls. After three straight A-10 titles and 4 straight NCAA berths, including back-to-back NCAA Top 10 finishes in 2007 and 2008, the 49ers were on the brink of missing out on the 2009 NCAA Tournament. The only hope: Win the A-10 title and get the automatic berth.

The pressure was squarely on their shoulders. And the 49ers responded with Nagy winning the individual title, teammate Stefan Wiedergruen placing second and freshman Paul Ferrier posting his own all-conference performance with a fifth-place finish. Charlotte won by 11 strokes -- and will be back in the hunt at the 2009 NCAA Tournament.

Golfweek, a national publication, highlighted the 49ers "Season-Saving" league title at the A-10 Championships in the article linked below.
