Hill has been on a hot streak, winning eight of the last nine tournaments he has entered. He’s the first Pack golfer to win a national championship.

Hill’s national title is also the third for an NC State student-athlete this spring. On March 21, wrestler Darrion Caldwell won the 149-pound individual title and diver Kristin Davies ’09 won the national title in platform diving. It was the first time NC State student-athletes have won two national championships in the same day.

Our post on Hill earlier this week included links to stories about him. Look for more on Davies and Caldwell in the summer issue of NC State magazine.

    Hill is one of those guys… I’ve been watching him and he seems to have that gift. Theer are plenty of us that can shoot a 69 – but not consistently and not under pressure. This kid is one to watch for sure…
