KINGSTON SPRINGS, Tenn. – After finishing ninth in stroke play, North Carolina State made a statement Sunday in match play at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Collegiate Challenge Cup with a decisive 4-1 victory over eighth-ranked Texas A&M.

KINGSTON SPRINGS, Tenn. – Georgia Tech head coach Bruce Heppler came into the week not knowing how his team was going to perform.

It’s the team's second tournament of the year, and besides having seniors Ollie Schniederjans and Anders Albertson in the lineup once again, the other three players haven't had much experience playing college golf.

That didn't matter Friday.
