Last weekend, the Boston College men’s golf team was in Nashville, Tenn. competing in the Collegiate Challenge Cup, which pitted five teams from the ACC against five teams in the SEC. BC played against Mississippi State, but was defeated in a 3-2 loss.
Freshman Patrick Oleksak was the top finisher for the Eagles, scoring a total of 227 over three rounds of play to come out +14 on the par-71 course.
Nicholas Pandelena came in second for the Eagles with a score of 231, and John Jackopsic, Andy Mai, and Max Christiana followed, shooting 234, 234, and 236, respectively.
The SEC took the overall win with Tennessee defeating Wake Forest, Vanderbilt topped Duke, and the University of Georgia beat Clemson with a final score of 5-0.
Virginia was the only school that posted a win for the ACC, beating Texas A&M 3-2.
The University of Georgia came in first with a score of 832, and BC finished at the back of the pack in 10th place with a combined score of 914, falling short of its SEC opponent.
The Eagles are off until Oct. 4, after which they head to Macon, Georgia to compete in the Brickyard Collegiate.
