LeCroy’s debut a success

Former Donoho golfer helps South Alabama win its season-opening tournament, finishes T-10 in first college start
By East Alabama Sports Today
Jacob LeCroy’s first college tournament didn’t start well, but it couldn’t have ended any better.

Jacob LeCroy holds the team trophy after South Alabama won its first tournament of the season.

The South Alabama freshman from Donoho went bogey-double on the first two holes of his collegiate career, but he birdied his last hole of regulation and parred his hole in a three-team playoff Tuesday to help the Jaguars win the UTSA/Lone Star Invitational.
LeCroy, who qualified as the Jags’ No. 2 player but played No. 3 because he was a freshman, finished tied for 10th individual with rounds of 76-72-71 on the same 7,400-yard San Antonio course they play the PGA Tour’s Valero Open. They used the Sunday Valero pin placements Tuesday.
LeCroy had five birdies Tuesday in his first collegiate round under-par and 11 in the tournament.
The Jags won the team playoff over UT-Arlington and Houston by one shot. They had three pars and two birdies.
