VALDOSTA, Ga.—The Barry Buccaneers slipped to second place on the final of the 2011 Southeastern Collegiate on Tuesday as the Georgia College sprinted to the team title at Kinderlou Forrest Golf Club.

The Bucs (289-294-290—873) shot a very respectable +2 on the finals round, but the Bobcats (295-289-285—869), led by individual medalist Patrick Garrett, fired a -3 to pull ahead. West Florida (292-295-291—878) came in third, while North Alabama (293-294-297—884) and Columbus State (295-292-297—884) tied for fourth.

Garrett (70-72-70—212) finished two strokes ahead of Aaron Elrod of Armstrong Atlantic (75-69-70—214) and Columbus State’s Rourke Van der Spuy (73-69-72—214) for the individual medal.

The Bucs’ top four players all finished within two strokes of each other. Chris Carlin finished 10th at two-over-par (72-74-72—218) to lead the team. Daniel Stapff (70-77-72—219) and Marcus Segerstrom 73-72-74—219) were one stroke back and tied for 11th. Guillermo Pumarol (74-74-72—220) was one stroke further back and tied for 15th. Marcelo Huarte (75-74-75—224) tied for 28th to complete the Bucs’ entry.

The Bucs get another shot at the Bobcats next week when they travel up to the Golf Club of Cuscowilla in Eatonville, Ga., for the GCSU’s Bobcat Invitational.
