After four years of rewriting the record books and putting together the most decorated career in program history, Dawson Armstrong announced Sunday his decision to forgo the remainder of his senior season with the Bisons to start his professional career.
After meeting 18 times in 13 sports throughout the fall and spring seasons, Lipscomb Athletics has been crowned the inaugural winner of the Boulevard trophy over Belmont. The trophy was awarded to the Bisons after winning the all-sports race by a score of 11-7.
Lipscomb Athletics came together last Wednesday night in Allen Arena to celebrate the achievements over the past year with the 2018 Lippy Awards.
Finishing at -7 with a two-round total of 135 (69-66), Armstrong is the first golfer in league history to win back-to-back medalist since Jacksonville’s Duncan Stewart in 2005-06. The Bisons finished second in the team standings for a second consecutive season.
After play was postponed on Monday due to rain, officials have made the decision to play a final round of 18 holes on Tuesday for the ASUN Championship.
With five birdies on his scorecard, senior Eric Ansett topped the leaderboard at the ASUN Championship with a -4, 68. He and the Bisons finished round one in 2nd-place after combining to shoot a team total of -2, 286.
Dawson Armstrong earned his third-consecutive ASUN Men’s Golfer of Year honor, while Eric Ansett was named the ASUN Scholar Athlete of the Year for the second straight year when the league announced its postseason awards Saturday night.
The Lipscomb men’s golf team heads to Braselton, Georgia on Sunday looking to make history in the 40th ASUN Championship at the Legends Course at the Chateau Elan Golf Club. The Bisons lost by one stroke a season ago to Kennesaw State.
Dawson Armstrong captured a runner-up finish at the Old Waverly Collegiate Championship this past week at 7-under par to earn his 13th career ASUN Men's Golfer of the Week honor, breaking the conference's record for most weekly awards in any sport.
