Roundup — EMCC sweeps Bishop State in season opener



EMCC stands four strokes out of first

    DIAMONDHEAD — The East Mississippi Community College men’s golf team stands four strokes out of first place with a third-place team showing during Sunday’s opening round of the MACJC’s first golf tournament of the 2013 spring season being held at the Diamondhead Pine golf course.

    Head coach Dale Peay’s EMCC Lions carded a first-round 318 to trail host Mississippi Gulf Coast by a pair of strokes. With an opening-round 314, Copiah-Lincoln will take a 2-stroke lead into Monday’s final round.  East Central stands fourth with a 319.

    Individually for the Lions, sophomore Caleb Westmoreland finished Day 1 in a three-way tie for second place after firing a 4-over-par 76. A transfer from Delta State, Westmoreland is currently tied with Co-Lin’s Alex Clark and Jack Byrd of Northwest Mississippi.
