South Mountain CC won its fifth national title this decade, claiming a decisive victory in the 2019 NJCAA D-II Championship at Swan Lake Resort's Black Course in Plymouth, Ind. The Cougars, in a tense battle after three rounds, pulled away with a 9-under 279 during the final round to win the national championship by 19 strokes over runner-up Walters State CC. Rounding out the top five were Mississippi Gulf Coast CC, Kirkwood CC and Parkland College. The course was par 72 and measured 6,960 yards. The average 18-hole score was 79.8 strokes. Scores were about three strokes lower on average during the fourth round.

Leon D'Souza repeated as national individual champion, winning the medal by two strokes with a 4-under 284 (73-71-73-67) to lead the Cougars. Branden Meyer was fourth (73-73-76-69=291), and Jonathan Walters tied for eighth (77-75-73-71=296).

South Mountain CC placed fourth in the 2018 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II Championship. The Cougars placed fifth in the 2017 NJCAA Division II Championship, and won the NJCAA Division II Region 1 Championship.

The Cougars won the 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2015 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II Championship, and took second in 2011.
