Gardner-Webb University has fielded a disc golf team for only a year, but the program already holds a national championship appearance and an individual collegiate record. The GWU team recently finished 38th in the 2015 National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships, ahead of schools like Clemson, Auburn, Texas A&M and Purdue. Junior team member Chase Richards set an individual collegiate distance record during the event, throwing a disc 620 feet, 6 inches.
