Dacula grad Hunter Fry chips onto the green during a tournament for USC Upstate.

Dacula grad Hunter Fry, a senior at USC Upstate, earned the Big South Conference’s automatic qualifying spot into the NCAA Men’s Golf Regional at The Golf Club of Tennessee in Kingston Springs, Tenn.

He is one of 10 individuals not on qualifying teams in the event, which serves as a qualifier for the NCAA Championships.

"Exciting to have Hunter playing in the Kingston Springs NCAA Regionals," USC Upstate head golf coach Todd Lawton said. "I know he will be ready as he's been preparing so well for every event all season. Looking forward to him having this opportunity to compete at the highest level." 

Last month, Fry became the first USC Upstate male golfer to win an individual conference championship in the Division I era. Fry earned the automatic bid from the conference and earned a spot on the All-Championship team. The senior also earned a spot on the All-Conference team and All-Academic team.

Going into the Big South Championships, Fry was shooting even par for the season with a 72.00 stroke average. He finished with a pair of wins on the season and three rounds of 67.
