HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss. – The EMCC men’s golf team earned a berth in the 2009 NJCAA Region 23 Championship by claiming a third-place team finish at the MACJC State Championship held Monday and Tuesday at Kirkwood National Golf Club.
Battling blustery weather conditions during the two-day event, head coach Dale Peay’s Lions carded consistent rounds of 334 and 335 to finish three strokes behind runner-up Mississippi Gulf Coast. Copiah-Lincoln captured the team title with a composite 655 total (329-326) on the par-72, 6,640-yard layout.
Second-team all-state selection Jordan Jamar of Bossier City, La., paced East Mississippi by finishing in a tie for fourth place (79-82—161) with MGCCC’s Corey Ward. Elliott Bingham of Hinds earned individual medalist honors with a 1-stroke victory (158-159) over Co-Lin’s Derin Petite.
Belmont’s Trey Adams tied for 11th place individually (84-81—165), while Brandon’s Garrett Alford finished in a 19th-place tie for the Lions. Caledonia’s Hal Larkin, EMCC’s other second-team all-state performer this spring, tied for 27th with a 174 effort (87-87). East Mississippi’s state tournament scorecard was rounded out by Will Black of Calhoun City with a 31st-place showing (91-85—176).
