The Delta Directional team won the Championship Flight during the 18th Annual East Central Community College Warrior Golf Classic held at the Dancing Rabbit Golf Club, located on the Pearl River Resort in Choctaw.
Sponsored by the ECCC Alumni Association, the four-person scramble raised more than $12,000 for student scholarships, according to event coordinator Maria McLeod, assistant to the vice president for public information at ECCC in Decatur.
“After a two-year hiatus due to inclement weather and COVID-19,” said McLeod, “we were very excited to return to the Dancing Rabbit with a sold-out field of teams for the 2021 tournament. Thanks to the generosity of our players and sponsors, we were able to once again raise more than $12,000 for our student scholarship fund, which each year provides two full tuition scholarships to deserving ECCC students. This year’s tournament was a great success and we are already planning next year’s event.”
The team representing Delta Directional of Newton posted a 17-under par 55 over the 18-hole event for the win. Team members included Terry Sessums, Neil Pettigrew, Brian Burns and Joel Nelson.
