The Paris Junior College Fall Invitational was held Sept. 15 at the Paris Golf and Country Club, and the Dragons finished in second place among the seven-team field, with one player named Medalist.

Highly ranked McLennan was the team champion with a two under par two round total of 558. The Dragons were 11 shots back at 569 with rounds of 286 and 283. PJC’s Tyler Dunbar, a sophomore from Lufkin, was the individual medalist after birding the first hole in a sudden death playoff. Dunbar had rounds of 69-70 for the tournament.

Paris also had good play out of Jordan Brown, a freshman from Mansfield, with rounds of 71 and 70; Cameron Holzshu, freshman from Montgomery, who fired 73-71; Longview sophomore Collin Thompson, who shot 73-37; and Logan Dent, a sophomore from Bangs, with rounds of 76-72. Paris also had three players participating as individuals. They were led by sophomore Oliver Stephens from Sarnia, Canada, with rounds of 72-69; Grayson Benavides, a freshman from Ft. Worth, who shot 77-76; and Amarillo freshman Jordan Freeman, shooting rounds of 83-80.

“I thought we competed very well today,” said PJC golf coach David Johnson. “It was the first college tournament for several of the guys and they performed well under pressure. Brown played really well except for a couple of bad holes or he would have scored way better than he did. Cameron also performed well in his first college tournament. Tyler Dunbar had a big win in the playoff and that was exciting for him and the team. Oliver Stephens also played very well.”

The Dragons next see action September 29-30 at Lake Texoma at Chickasaw Point Golf Club, hosted by Southeast Oklahoma State University.
