2014 NJCAA National Championship

May 13-16, 2014 Spirit Hollow Golf Course Burlington, Iowa Chilly, wet and windy conditions prevailed each day at the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Division I tournament at Spirit Hollow Golf Course in Burlington, Iowa, last week. Despite the conditions, Paris Junior College golfer Zac Oliver was named First Team All American thanks to his play. He tied for fifth place and the team came in sixteenth overall with a total score of 1264. “The golf course was demanding,” said PJC golf coach David Johnson. “Zac played really well and I was really proud of him. He played well for all four rounds and deserved to make All American. The golf course was the really big winner, it was just a hard course.” Oliver’s honor came on the heels of an announcement last week by the Golf Coaches Association of America. That group named Oliver to the NJCAA Division I PING Second Team All-America and to the NJCAA Division I PING All District II Team. At the end of the spring semester PJC also honored Oliver, awarding him the Mickey Flippen Cup for most valuable player in golf. Oliver had a 72.87 stroke average, was ranked first in NJCAA Region XIV and 20th nationally.

2014 District II NJCAA Championship

April 20-22, 2014
Dennis, Texas

With a fifth place win Tuesday, the Paris Junior College golf team became Region XIV champions and qualified for the National Junior College Athletic Association tournament in Burlington, Iowa, May 13-16. PJC Golf Coach David Johnson was also named Region XIV golf coach of the year.

“I was really proud of the way the young men competed,” said Coach Johnson. “It has been a goal of theirs all year to win regionals and advance to nationals.”

In the past two years, one PJC golfer qualified as an individual for the National event; it has been three years since a PJC team earned a spot in the tournament.

Tournament qualification was based on combined scores from the District II Championship played April 21-22 at Sugar Tree Golf Club in Dennis and the NJCAA Southwest Championship, played April 7-8 in Pottsboro. The District II Tournament involves junior colleges in Texas and New Mexico from NJCAA Regions V and XIV. All golfers played three rounds at each tournament, and both events combined determine region and district champions.

Zac Oliver of Checotah, Okla., was the Region XIV medalist, finishing as the top golfer in the region. Oliver trailed the field by five shots going into the second day of the tournament but rallied and shot a three under par, 67, for a two-shot victory. He was also named to the All Region Team, and for finishing second overall in District play, earned All District honors as well.

Also named to the All Region Team were Jeremy Salas of Arlington, finishing third, and Tyler Dunbar of Lufkin, finishing fourth.

Other team members taking part in the two tournaments were freshmen Oliver Stephens of Sarnia, Ontario, Canada and Collin Thompson of Longview.
