West Florida takes GSC championship behind Heredia

TUNICA, Miss. -- Juan Miguel Heredia led No. 10 West Florida to its 12th Gulf South Conference championship at Tunica National on Tuesday. The Argonauts (285-289-291 - 865) were in third place heading into Tuesday’s final round, but the team rallied to post the lowest score of the day to take the tournament win.

The GSC championship is the 12th for UWF, and all have come under head coach Steve Fell. The Argonauts have now won two GSC titles in a row and three of the past four.

Heredia (71-65-67 - 203) finished 13-under par at 203, marking a new 54-hole tournament record for the GSC championships. The previous record of 204 was set by North Alabama’s Brett Munson. It was also the third best 54-hole score in UWF history. Heredia is the ninth men’s player in school history to earn GSC individual medalist honors, and it was the first tournament win of his career.

The Argos trailed Delta State (290-278-302 - 870) and North Alabama (287-282-301 - 870) after the first two rounds on Monday, but the team was able to erase the six-stroke deficit and win the tournament by five.

Heredia was joined on the GSC all-tournament team by sixth place finisher and freshman Esteban Castro. Castro (69-73-75 - 217) finished 1-over par at his first postseason tournament as an Argonaut.

Freshman JR Schultz nearly finished in the top 10 in his first postseason tournament for UWF, placing 11th at 4-over par (72-77-71 - 220). He was followed in the Argonaut lineup by Talin Rajendranath in 20th place (73-76-78 - 227) and Gary Buffington III in 40th (81-75-80 - 236).
