The Meridian Community College golf team embarked on a road trip to Phoenix Friday.
The Eagles will take part in the Arizona Intercollegiate Tournament Monday and Tuesday, where they will be the only Junior College team in the field of 15.
The team hopes to get a good look at Palm Valley Golf Course because it is the site of this year's Junior College National Championship in May.
"It will be tough for us to scratch the top five or six, but we'll try to," says MCC golf coach Sean Covich. "It's a great chance and a learning experience for us and a good recruiting tool."
