The Paris Junior College Dragons golf team finished in third place this Tuesday at the Tyler Junior College Fall Invitational held at Pine Springs Golf Club in Tyler.

The Dragons shot rounds of 293 and a four-under 284 in the second round. PJC was led by Mansfield freshman Preston Woodard finished tied for fourth place with rounds of 73 and a three under par 69. His two under par 142 achieved a place on the All Tournament team.

Jordan Brown continued his steady play with rounds of 75 and a two under 70 to end tied for 10th. Blake Elliott had solid rounds of 72 and 74, ending tied for 12th. Other PJC scores were Grayson Benavides 73, 75 (T17), Lance Roden 77, 71 (T17) and Adam Vining 75,76 (T26).

“The first day we played okay,” said PJC Golf Coach David Johnson. “I thought we competed well on the second day and played like we are capable of playing. We have to connect the two days together with consistent play in order to win golf tournaments. Overall I thought we made good strides this week. We played against two really good teams and see where we stand when we compete against the best. The freshmen are getting some good experience being in the last groups early this year. This will help them become better players in the future. I am really proud of the way we handled ourselves on the course. It’s a pleasure to see positive attitudes and good decision making from all the guys.”

The Dragons see action next in two weeks at the Twin Rivers Golf Club in Waco, Oct. 25-27.
