Ex-Mize golfer Dickson signs with JCJC

Posted: Updated:

ELLISVILLE – Patrick Dickson signed a golf scholarship with Jones County Junior College on Friday here in the Media Room of the C.L. Neill Student Center.

Dickson, who is from Mt. Olive and graduated from Mize High School, is a transfer from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and will have one year of eligibility remaining.

"It's closer to home and I like the atmosphere," Dickson said of coming to JCJC. "I am looking forward to it."

Dickson and the Bulldogs played in the NJCAA Division II National Tournament at Goose Pond Colony in Scottsboro, Ala., in May. He shot 331 over the four-day event and the Bulldogs finished sixth as a team.

"It would be nice to go back there again," he added.

Dickson, who calls Okatoma Golf Club in Collins his home course, played at Mize along with Bobcat teammate Zach Toney. Mize finished second in the state two straight years when they were there.
