SCC Finishes Eighth At National Championship
Southeast Community College's Noah Hofman finished in third place at 6-under at the NJCAA Division II Men's Golf Championship this past week at the GlenLakes Golf Club in Foley, Alabama. The Storm golf team finished in eighth place overall.
"We played pretty well, the field was really loaded this year," said Head Coach Bill Campbell. "Noah was very close to winning it this year. He finished in the dark in Wednesday's round and then turned it around for a 7 a.m. tee off."
Hofman, a McCook native, earned his second First-Team All-American honor because of his top five finish. He finished in second place last year. Campbell said he missed three putts by a total of 2.5 inches in the last three holes.
Campbell said the team played well overall despite multiple weather delays including two during the third round. "The team really responded well with our best round 294."
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College claimed its first team championship by shooting 9-under in the fourth round. The Bulldogs finished at 2-under to hold off MACJC rival Meridian by one shot, moving up two places on the leaderboard to claim the title.
Parkland College finished third at 1-over, and South Mountain was fourth at 2-over. It was led by a 1-2 finish in the individual standings by Leon D'Souza and Jeffrey Miller. D'Souza shot 69 to finish at 8-under for the tournament and win by one shot.
The teams endured one final rain delay Thursday, breaking for nearly two hours in the afternoon because of a thunderstorm. Fifteen teams took part in the tournament.
