No. 1 MGCCC in third after opening round

No. 1 Mississippi Gulf Coast is in third place after the opening round of the Wallace State Fall Invitational, played Monday in Cullman, Ala.

 

The host team shot 6-under and leads second-place Central Alabama by 11 shots. The Bulldogs shot 7-over in the first round, led by Brice Wilkinson (Fr. Madison Central/Madison).

 

He shot 2-under 70 and is two behind a pair of Wallace State golfers. Only five golfers finished in red numbers after the first day.

 

Gulf Coast is one of just two NJCAA Division II teams in the field, along with Meridian. The MACJC rivals are 18 shots behind the Bulldogs. All but one of the other teams is an NJCAA Division I school.

 

Gulf Coast's Jackson Wedgeworth (So., West Jones/Soso) shot 74, followed a shot back by Logan Leary (So., Gonzales/Dutchtown, La.) and another by Miles Jackson (Fr. Biloxi/Biloxi). Colby Blake (So., Parklane/Tylertown) had a 78.

 

The 36-hole tournament concludes at Cross Creek Golf Course on Tuesday.
