Co-Lin finishes third at MGCCC Fall Invitational

SAUCIER, Miss. – The Copiah-Lincoln Community College golf team had yet another solid performance early this week at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Fall Invitational at Grand Bear Golf Club in Saucier, Miss. The Wolves brought home third place amongst MACJC competitors after shooting a 627 through two days. Gulf Coast, the host team, won the tournament with a two-day total of 590, and East Central Community College placed second with a 613.

Co-Lin's Cameron Little played exceptionally well in only his third collegiate tournament.  The freshman from Baton Rouge, La. shot back-to-back rounds of 75 for a two-day total of 150. The impressive play landed Little on the All-Tournament Team for the event.

Lucas Brewer fired a 77 in the opening round and an 80 in the second for a two-day total of 157. The score was tied for the thirteenth best amongst MACJC teams.

Co-Lin's Bryce Chapman finished in the top-20 with a tournament score of 165. The freshman shot an 81 and an 84. Sophomore Matthew Scoville joined Chapman in the top-20 with a 165. Scoville shot an 87 to start the tournament, but turned things around in the second round where he carded a 78.

Bragg Eplin rounded out the Co-Lin players with a 169. Eplin shot an 83 in the opening round and an 86 in the second.

"We are making some changes right now, and when you run across a difficult course and tough conditions you are going to struggle a bit," said Co-Lin head golf coach Ronny Ross.  "But like in the past, we expect these changes and tweaks to pay off later in the season…our main goal is to be ready for the spring half of the season and the national tournament."

The Wolves are back on the course Monday, October 23 as Co-Lin travels to Choctaw, Miss. for the MACJC Preview at the Dancing Rabbit. For updates follow @colinathletics on Twitter.
