Tech's men actually took the top two spots, with the Orediggers' top team carding a cumulative 319 strokes and their 'B' team placing second with 324 strokes. Tech's top team was paced by individual medalist Brady Cady, who shot a 3-over-par 75 on a difficult day on the legendary Jack Nicklaus-designed course at Old Works Golf Club. Isaiah Weldon, golfing on Tech's 'B' team, placed second with a 76, and Matt Hobbs, also golfing for Tech's 'B' team, tied for third with a 77.
