The No. 6-ranked Frogs held on for a narrow dual-match victory over No. 8 Georgia Tech in a showdown at the Crabapple Course at Capital City Club on Friday in Atlanta.

TCU posted a 3 1/2 to 2 1/2 victory over the Yellow Jackets after outright victories by seniors Eli Cole (3 and 2) and Daniel Jennevret (2 and 1) and sophomore Thomas Mantovanini (2 up). Sophomore Julien Brun halved his match against Georgia Tech’s top player, Ollie Schniederjans.

It was TCU’s second of two dual matches of the season. The Frogs defeated Pepperdine 4-1 back in early March.

TCU coach Bill Montigel added the events in preparation for a possible trip to the NCAA Championship in late May. Friday’s dual match also served as a preview for the Frogs of the course where the NCAA Championship will be held.

The Frogs open the championship portion of their schedule early next week in Hutchinson, Kan. with their inaugural appearence in the Big 12 Championships.
