GREENSBORO, N.C.-- Not winning it all doesn't mean you can't enjoy and savor your second place win. If you're not a senior there's always next year, just ask the UNC Tarheels about that.
This time we're talking about Guilford College's Golf Team. The team lost to Wittenberg University in the NCAA Division III Men's Golf Championship, in Florida, and placed second.

Showing true sportsmanship the guys posed with their trophy on the greens after winning, but also decided to show it some love on the way home, even giving it a hashtag #quakertrophytour.
The trophy went to Outback with the guys and was proudly displayed on the dinner table. Plates are pretty clean so dinner was definitely a win.
And of course you have to run it through airport screening check on your way back to Greensboro.
Heck yeah! The pilot and flight attendant pose withe Quakers' trophy in Atlanta during flight changed. That's a good looking foursome right there (yes, we count the trophy, why objectify it now?)
A perfect landing at Piedmont Triad Airport in Greensboro and the pilots couldn't keep their hands off the Quakers' trophy. #quakertrophytour #allthefeels
Final destination, any guesses? Duh! Guilford College campus just in time for Graduation day. Plenty of love on campus for the hardware and photos with the graduates.
One more with a future Quaker golf-a-famer. Seriously y'all!
No place like home! The trophy is safely in place in Guilford College's Athletic Department joining the many other trophies and hardware. What no red carpet? Judging from the awesome #quakertrophytoru photos, winning second was a minor detail, at least for the trophy.
Maybe next time they don't win it all, the hashtag will be #respectthequakerstrophytour and that's just #IMO (in my opinion). Congratulations to Guilford College's Men's Golf Team on your National Runner-up win.
