 March 4, 2013

BOONEVILLE, Miss. –  Northeast Mississippi Community College men’s golf team finished eighth at the second Mississippi Association of Community/Junior Colleges (MACJC) tour stop of the year at the Eagle Ridge Golf Course in Raymond on March 2-3.

Northeast which finished eighth in its first event of the year at the Diamondhead Country Club’s Pine Course in Diamondhead got off to a quick start after sitting a month between competitions.

Nick Coln’s crew tied host Hinds on the first day with a 332 with Corinth’s Blake Farris leading the way for the Tigers.

Farris fired a first-day 79 and followed up with an 81 for a two-day 160 to finish in a tie for eleventh overall after the two-day event.

Booneville’s Jay Swinney was the second Tiger in the clubhouse with a two-day 166 after posting identical 83s on the first and second days.

Teammate Jordan Wilson of Baldwyn was close behind Swinney as the Northeast sophomore finished with a two-day 170 after carding an 83 and 87 during his two rounds at Eagle Ridge.

New Albany’s Peyton Dunlap finished with a 177 (87-90) while Baldwyn’s Ty Lindsey saw the biggest improvement on the Tiger team when the Northeast sophomore shaved seven strokes off his first day’s total for a two-day 193.

In the overall team standings, Mississippi Gulf Coast rallied on the second day with a 304 to take top honors away from Copiah-Lincoln 625-630.

East Central finished two strokes ahead of East Mississippi 635-637 while Northwest Mississippi and Jones County battled in the middle of the pack for fifth and sixth place with the Rangers taking out the Bobcats 651-655.
