Matt Crews, a sophomore at Florida State, practices before the SouthEast Collegiate Open. The two-day event was held at Wildwood Park and the top two teams earned playoff berths.

Two automatic berths into the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships were on the line when teams from across the country gathered at Wildwood Park for the Pocket Disc SouthEast Collegiate Open Saturday and Sunday.

The field included the Mississippi State Lady Bulldogs, the women’s defending national champions and the South Carolina men’s team that won the same event last year.

“With 31 teams this is the largest collegiate tournament with the exception of the national championships,” said Alan Kane, the Professional Disc Golf Association events manager and tournament director.

Just three women’s teams participated, but that was fine with Mississippi State’s Krystin Nowicki.

“It’s good to see other women’s teams,” she said.

Nowicki would finish the individual competition in second place behind Western Carolina’s Ruth Hudson

In the men's competition, South Carolina 1 finished first and Kennesaw State finished second, six strokes ahead of Georgia. The Mississippi State women far outdistanced the competition and finished first with East Tennessee State in second.
