ECCC’s Clark Named MACJC Golf Co-Coach of the Year

Chris Clark, head golf coach at East Central Community College in Decatur since 2011, has been
named Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges Golf Co-Coach of the Year for 2017-18.

A native of Decatur and former all-state golfer at ECCC, Clark led his 2017-18 Warrior golf team to a fourth-place finish in the MACJC Conference/State Tournament and a third-place finish in the National Junior College Athletic Association District D Tournament.

By virtue of their finish in the NJCAA District D Tournament, the ECCC golfers earned the college’s first-ever trip to the NJCAA National Championship to be played May 21-24 at GlenLakes Golf Club in Foley, Ala.

Clark is a workforce development coordinator at ECCC.

Clark’s father, the late Joe Clark, was named MACJC Golf Coach of the Year in 2001. He started the East Central golf program and served as coach for 30 years.
