NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. --- The 15th-ranked Georgia men's golf team defeated Princeton and Army in the Northeast Tri-Match on Sunday at Aronimink Golf Club.
The Bulldogs recorded a team score of 7-over-par 287 to outdistance Princeton's 296 and Army's 313.
Georgia won four of the five groups to seize control of the event. Freshman Nicholas Reach, a Pennsylvania native, paced the Bulldogs with a 1-under 69. Sophomore Brian Carter and freshman Sepp Straka each signed for a 2-over 72, while junior T.J. Mitchell carded a 4-over 74 and freshman Sam Straka had a 13-over 83.
"I was pleased with the way our guys played today," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "Having to play just one round means you really have to concentrate on what you're doing. You don't have a second or third round to fall back on to turn things around. I saw a lot of focus today, and this is something that we can build on with this young team."
The Bulldogs will return to action Oct. 7-9 in the Brickyard Collegiate Championship in Macon.
