Meridian Community College will host its seventh-annual Rush/MCC Invitational golf tournament Tuesday at Northwood Country Club.
Actually, MCC will be hosting two tournaments with 13 junior colleges participating.
Meridian will field both a green and white squad in the nine-team Division II tournament. Also competing in Division II are Hinds, Gulf Coast, East Mississippi, Pearl River, Northeast Mississippi, Holmes, and Itawamba.
Competing in the five-team Division III tournament field are East Central, Southwest Mississippi, Northwest Mississippi, Jones, and Copiah-Lincoln.
Division II allows partial scholarships, while Division III offers no scholarships.
Play is slated to get under way at 8 a.m. off both the front and back nines.
MCC coach Lou Hart is hoping her team is ready to begin stepping up its play toward another region championship down the road.
Hart expects the Eagle golfers to do well at Northwood.
MCC will join the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges for the 2002-2003 school year.
Members of the defending Region 23 Division II champion MCC team are Daniel Boles of Clarkdale, Clinton Hales of Northeast Lauderdale, David Bailey of Meridian, Brandon Laird of Biloxi, Cameron Hunt, who was the Class 1A state medalist in 1999 and the Class 2A state medalist in 2000 at East Webster; Jamie Sullivan, the 2000 Class 4A state medalist at New Hope; Trey Vaughan of New Hope, Nicholas Swanner of Clarkdale, Brett Clopton of Lamar, Chris Davis of Bessemer, Ala., and Josh Martin of Northwest Rankin.
