ATLANTA – Nicholas Thompson shot a four-under-par 68, and Mike Barbosa carded a two-under-par 70 Saturday, lifting Georgia Tech into fourth place, a two-spot jump, after two rounds of the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship at New London, N.C.

Tech posted a team score of four-under-par 284 Saturday over the 7,100-yard, par 72 Old North State Club at Uwharrie Point for a 36-hole total of 574. While the Yellow Jackets moved up two positions in the team race, they fell 15 shots behind the lead after Clemson blistered the course with a 13-under-par 275 and surged into the lead at 559 (17-under-par for the tournament).

NC State posted a 10-under-par 278 and moved into second place, seven shots behind the Tigers at 566. Wake Forest is in third place (286 – 569). First-round leader North Carolina fell back to fifth place after a three-over-par 291 (579), followed by Duke (293 – 580). Florida State and Virginia (291 – 586) are tied for seventh, and Maryland (311 – 608) is ninth.

Thompson, a junior from Coral Springs, Fla., moved into fifth place individually with a 36-hole total of 139, five shots under par. He is three shots behind leader Jack Ferguson of Clemson, whose 67 vaulted him into a one-shot lead at eight-under-par 136. Sean Moore of Wake Forest, who also shot 67, is at 147, followed by Matt Hendrix of Clemson and Stephen Lewton of NC State (138).

Barbosa, a sophomore from Santa Barbara, Calif., shot a 70 which gave him a 36-hole total of 145, one over par, and a tie for 15th place. Freshman Roberto Castro followed his first-round 70 with a 74 Saturday and is tied for 10th place individually at even-par 144.

Chan Wongluekiet, a junior from Bradenton, Fla., carded an even-par 72 and is tied for 20th place at 146. Kevin Larsen shot 78 and is in a tie for 39th at 153.
