Brandon Barrett (Tupelo) rebounded from an opening-round 91 with an 81 on the final game of play to finish 28th with a 172 (+28) while Hunter Lucas (Belmont) turned in an 83 and 95 for a two-day total 178 (+34) to finish 30th.

Meridian Community College picked up the MACJC Championship with a team-total of 577 (+1) with Will Kidder (Meridian) taking home medalist honors with a two-day total of 140 (-4) to be one of three players to finish under-par for the tournament.
