Rocky Face, Ga. – Anders Albertson remained steady Saturday with a 2-under-par 70 to lead 4th-ranked Georgia Tech, but the rest of the young lineup struggled to score on a perfect day, and the Yellow Jackets fell to seventh place after 36 holes of the Carpet Capital Collegiate golf tournament.

Tech posted a 9-over-par score of 297 Saturday, which included an even-par 72 from sophomore Bo Andrews. Freshman Ollie Schniederjans added a 77, and sophomore Drew Czuchry a 78 to count for the Yellow Jackets, who wound up the day 14 strokes behind surging Auburn.

The Tigers shot a 9-under-par 279 Saturday for a 7-under-par tournament total of 569, bolting to a 5-stroke lead over Chattanooga, Tennessee and Clemson, each at 2-under-par for 36 holes. The Volunteers shot 7-under for the round. Alabama was fifth at 1-under-par, followed by Georgia (+6) and Tech (+7).

The remainder of the 12-team field, which includes six top-25 teams, was LSU (+9), Wake Forest and Kennesaw State (each at +13), South Carolina (+14) and Middle Tennessee State (+19).

Albertson, a freshman from Woodstock, Ga., who began the second round on the 10th hole as did his teammates, played the back nine even, then came home with a pair of birdies and no bogeys on the front nine. Andrews, a sophomore from Raleigh, N.C., shook off a triple-bogey on his first hole to post four birdies and a bogey the rest of the way.

Albertson is tied with two others for 15th place at even-par 144 for 36 holes, five shots behind Georgia freshman Bryden McPherson and Chattanooga’s Benjamin Weilguni, both at 5-under 139 after firing 67s on Saturday. Andrews is in a group of four players tied for 18th another shot back at 145.

Schniederjans and Czuchry are tied for 26th place at 147, while sophomore Seth Reeves dropped into 58th place after carding an 83 Saturday.
