ATLANTA – Georgia State will continue a stretch of three tournaments in 13 days Saturday at the Mission Inn Spring Spectacular hosted by former CAA foe George Mason at the Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.
Freshman Jonathan Grey, who recorded his seventh top 20 finish in seven events this year last weekend at the Cleveland Golf/Palmetto Intercollegiate, will lead the Panthers line-up that will look similar to a week ago.
Joining Grey will be juniors Tyler Gruca and Grant Cagle, along with sophomore Davin White who were all in the line-up last week. Junior Ross Mclister, who is quietly having a solid spring and shot a final round 74 in his last round at Sawgrass, will rejoin the line-up.
“It worked out perfectly that as we enter spring break, we were able to take the entire team with us to Florida,” commented head coach Joe Inman. “We are now in our final stretch run to getting back to the postseason and for us to see how everyone can perform under tournament pressure is great.
“Our team feels as though we have not yet peaked this spring, but are building that way heading to April when we need to be playing our best. I think this tournament will be a good stepping stone towards our end of the year goals and hopefully we can return to Atlanta with a victory.”
Along with host George Mason, the field includes Appalachian State, Connecticut, Florida Atlantic, Hartford, Indiana, Marquette, Morehead State, Murray State, Northern Illinois, Old Dominion, Purdue, Rutgers, Stetson, Towson, Virginia Tech and Western Illinois.
Grey leads the team with a 72.09 scoring average this season, which if the year ended today, would be the sixth lowest mark in school history. He is currently ranked second in the Sun Belt Conference and has compiled two wins already this year. He is the running to play in this summer’s Palmer Cup and to earn Freshman All-America honors.
White is currently second on the team with a 73.61 scoring average and has finished in the top 25 in both appearances in the line-up this spring.
Following the event, Georgia State will conclude the three-tournament stretch at the Furman Intercollegiate, March 22-24 in Greenville, S.C.
