[su_spacer size=”40″] Sigg helped the Bulldogs come in second in the team race at 1-over 1,081 – six shots in back of Oklahoma State (1,075).
[su_spacer size=”40″] Junior Jaime Lopez Rivarola led Georgia on Sunday with a 3-under 69, followed by Sigg at 2-under 70. Freshman David Mackey signed for a 1-over 73, while senior Sepp Straka and sophomore Zach Healy each posted a 2-over 74. Redshirt freshman Jack Larkin Jr. had the Bulldogs’ non-counting score of 6-over 78.

[su_spacer size=”40″] “We could not be prouder of Greyson,” Georgia head coach Chris Haack said. “He’s worked very hard to get to this point. He’s been a very steady player for us the last couple of years, so it’s nice to see him break through and get one. Our guys were pretty solid all weekend. We had a lot of positive moments and we can build on that success moving forward.
