East Mississippi Community College's Matt King fired a 72 to take home medalist honors as he bested MCC's Dan Luke (73) by one stroke.
Lou Hart's squad took a huge step towards realizing its dream of winning the Region 23 tournament as the A-team has now won its last three tournaments of the spring.
Followed by Luke's 73, Morgan Stewart shot a 75, while Jamie Sullivan carded a 76 and Brandon Laird chipped in with a 78.
Gulf Coast came in third with a 314 while the East Mississippi Lions placed fourth by posting a 315.
