Wolves finish 3rd at MGCCC Invitational

The Copiah-Lincoln Community College Wolves finished third in the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Invitational held at Windance Country Club earlier this week. The event fielded 15 teams including a variety of community and four-year colleges. Co-Lin finished eighth among all colleges in attendance, but third amongst MACJC schools.

Co-Lin came out firing in the first round with a team total of 296, which placed the team in third overall, and second out of the MACJC programs. Day two proved much more difficult as almost every school added to their stroke totals. The Wolves shot a 318, which brought the two-day total to 614.

Central Alabama Community College won the event with a blistering 577, while Gulf Coast finished second (first place in MACJC play) with a 583. Meridian placed second in league play with a 610, while Northeast, Hinds, and Itawamba all finished below Co-Lin with 618, 643, and 663 totals.

Bryson Jones was light’s out for the Wolves both days as he carded a 72 and followed with a one-over 73. The impressive play placed him in sixth place overall, and in second place individually among MACJC players which earned him All-Tournament Team honors.

Garrett Herring shot a 75 to open the tournament followed by a 76 in the second round for a 151 which placed in 20th place overall.

Adam Files followed with a 71, 85, while Jacob Lammey carded a 77, 81. Logan Pitts posted a 78, 86, while Nick Davis rounded out the Wolves with an 83, 84.

The third-place finish is the third in a row for Co-Lin as they wrap the opening semester of play of the 2019-2020 season.
