Tech Falls to Oklahoma State in Hooters Match Play Final

Nov. 16, 2004

ATLANTA – Second-seeded Oklahoma State used a dominating performance to claim the men’s team title at the Hooters Collegiate Match Play Championship at the El Campeon Course at Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.

The Cowboys won four matches – including Alex Norén’s 7 and 5 win over Nicholas Thompson and Pablo Martin’s 4 and 3 victory against Roberto Castro – and halved another to down top-seeded Georgia Tech 4-0-1.

In addition, to the wins by Norén and Martin, Zack Robinson beat Chan Song, 2 and 1, and Chris Clarke outlasted Michael Barbosa, 1-up. Zac Reynolds halved his match with Kevin Larsen.

Castro, the nation’s No. 5-ranked player from Alpharetta, Ga., and Barbosa, a junior from St, Petersburg, Fla., each had won all three of their prior matches in the event before falling Tuesday. Song finished 2-2 in his matches, Thompson was 1-2-1, and Larsen was 1-0-2.

In other final round action, Texas defeated in-state rival Texas A&M, 3-2, to claim third place in the winners bracket consolation A final. Florida won the winners bracket consolation B final by not dropping a match to Clemson, winning 3-0-2. Penn State – the No. 16 seed – edged UCLA by winning the tiebreaker four holes to three in its 2-2-1 match to win the consolation bracket.

The loss handed the Yellow Jackets their third runner-up finish in five events on their fall schedule. Tech, which finished third in its other two tournaments, is idle until Feb. 9, when it opens its spring schedule at the Taylor Made/Waikoloa Intercollegiate.
