Fraser Davren stars for Eastern Florida State

as they win NJCAA Div 4 championship

The Eastern Florida State College men's golf team - "The Titans" - won the NJCAA District 4 Championship this week at Brewton, Alabama to advance to the NJCAA Division I Men's Championship.
The Titans won a district title for the fourth time in the past five years and advanced to the national tournament for the 15th straight time.
As they have all season, the Titans did it behind a strong team performance as four players finished in the top 10 in the district tournament, finishing with a total of  866 for the tournament - 26 shots ahead of runners-up Wallace State Community College.
 Brad Bawden, a sophomore from Hockley, England, finished second to Wallace State's Chip Willoughby  (70-75-68 for 212) after a final round of 3-under 69.
Bawden, whose earlier scores were 73 and 72, finished at two-under 214 over a 7,019yd par-72 course. 

Mathieu Echelard tied for third place by shooting even par in the final round and finished the three-round tournament even par. Teammate Fraser Davren, pictured, a freshman from Glasgow, shot one of the best rounds of the day, 4-under 68. to finish the tournament in fifth place at one-over 217. His earlier rounds were 77 and 72.
Tyler Bennett shot 3-under Tuesday to finish tied for ninth. Michael Stewart placed in a tie for 25th.
It is the seventh district title for golf coach Jamie Howell, who was pleased with the Titans' performance.
"Awesome day by the team, a lot of hard work showed in their play this week," Howell said.
"To stretch the lead after sleeping on it and finishing strong, it is a proud time for the team and I am more than proud of their performance."
The team will prepare for another shot at a national championship title beginning May 16 at Buffalo Dunes Golf Course in Garden City, Kansas.
