Staff report

CHARLOTTE — The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association has announced that Livingstone College golfer Philip Harrison has been named its male Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

The women’s award went to Virginia Union basketball player Taylor White.

Harrison is a business administration major with a 4.0 grade point average. With the highest GPA on the Blue Bears’ golf team, the sophomore won low medalist in the CIAA Golf Championship Tournament and advanced as an individual to the NCAA Super Regional Golf Tournament.

Harrison and his Livingstone team placed second in the conference championship and won the Black College Hall of Fame tournament.
