Gulf Coast moves closer to top spot

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast remained in second place in the new Bushnell Golfweek NJCAA Division II Coaches Poll, but picked up three first-place votes.

The defending national champions are just two points behind South Mountain. Kirkwood is third and fellow MACJC school Meridian is fourth.

Coach Tommy Snell's squad has been first or second in every poll this season. Gulf Coast won all five MACJC regular-season events and swept the rain-shortened conference championship, winning by 10 shots in 18 holes.

The Bulldogs won three of five non-conference events this year, as well.

The District D Tournament is next up on the calendar. It will be played April 27-28 at Ackia Golf Club in Amory. The national championship will be played May 21-25 at Swan Lake Resort in Plymouth, Ind.
