April 19, 2014

Complete Results

Georgia, ranked sixth in the nation, clinched a 3 ½-2 ½ win over No. 19 Florida State in the other semi-final when Joey Garber closed out the Seminoles Jack Maguire in the 17th hole to win 2 and 1.

The Tigers and Seminoles are meeting in the consolation match currently, with Tech and Georgia set to begin the championship match at approximately 2:30 p.m.

Werenski won his match, 5 and 3, over Long in the first match to finish Saturday morning, and Albertson gave Tech a cushion with a 3 and 2 win over Dan Stringfellow in match 2. Reeves won by the same score in match 5 over Matt Gilchrest to clinch at least a tie for the Yellow Jackets after Vincent Whaley fell 2 and 1 to Ryan Benton in the first match off the tee.

Bo Andrews and Ollie Schniederjans, meanwhile, had to rally to halve their matches in order for Tech to clinch the win and avoid a playoff. Andrews was down two holes with three to play, but won 17 and 18 to square his contest with Jake Mondy in match 3, which decided the match in favor of the Jackets. Schniederjans took 1-hole deficit to the last hole and won that to square his match against Niclas Carlsson.
