The latest college news
Unbeknownst to most, the state of Georgia’s college athletics collectively celebrated one of its annual high points Monday.
Six men’s golf teams from inside the state borders received NCAA regional tournament invitations: Georgia, Georgia Regents (formerly Augusta State), Georgia Southern, Georgia State, Georgia Tech and Kennesaw State. It matched the six bids extended last year, believed to be a record for the state.
While the state has long been recognized as a recruiting hotbed in multiple sports, the six NCAA bids is by far the most given to Georgia teams in any sport for a NCAA national team championship in the past 12 months.
