MCDERMOTT – Fifty-five student athletes from SOC member schools met in McDermott Tuesday to compete in the SOC Golf Championships hosted by the Elks Country Club. A team consisting of four or more members were eligble to compete for the outright team SOC Championship while each individual player competed for SOC Player of the Year and First and Second All-SOC honors. If a participating team consisted of more than four members, that team’s top four individual scores make up their overall team score.
