DULUTH, Ga. – With three Panthers finishing among the top 20, the Georgia State men’s golf team finished in a tie for third on Tuesday at the GSU Invitational at Berkeley Hills Country Club.
Sophomore Maxence Mugnier led the Panthers on Tuesday with a 3-under par 69 to finish tied for 32nd, however it was senior Owen Sertl who led Georgia State for the week with a tie for 12th at 2-under par for the 54-hole event.
Senior Jake Milanowski added a 2-under par 70 in the final round to finish tied for 16th, while freshman Jordan Jung added a 1-under par 71 to also tie for 16th.
The Panthers shot a final round 3-under par 285 to finish the event at 3-under par and tied with Tennessee Tech. Wright State shot a final round 13-under par 275, tied for the lowest final round in the 10-year history of the event, to finish at 18-under par and win by 10 strokes over Lafayette College.
Oakland’s Thomas Giroux, coached by former Panther assistant coach Nick Pumford, earned low medalist honors at 12-under par following a final round 70.
“After a tough opening round, our guys never stopped fighting and to go from 10th to third is something we can all be proud of,” head coach Chad Wilson said. “Going in the final hole, every guy in our line-up either made birdie or eagle and it just showed how every stroke in college golf counts. It helped us move up the leaderboard and now gives us some momentum going into our final event of the fall season.”
