Duke golf helps ACC beat SEC

The Duke men’s golf team played Missouri to a 2-2-1 tie at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Collegiate Cup Challenge to help the ACC earn a 16.5-13.5 win against the SEC in the match-play battle.

N.C. State and Clemson won their matches, Duke and Georgia Tech drew, and Virginia and Louisville lost.

The ACC and SEC split the six matches on the day, with the ACC securing the win by virtue of total matches won.

• Sierra Sims fired a 3-under 69 to help lead Wake Forest to second place after the first round of the Lady Paladin Invitational being played at the Furman University Golf Course in Greenville, S.C.


Duke: Freshman forward Ashley Kristen tallied a career-high two goals and senior Martine Chichizola added another as third-ranked Duke rebounded from its first loss to post a 3-0 victory at William & Mary.

• A day after suffering its first loss, North Carolina picked up its second shutout of the year, 3-0 over Miami (Ohio) in a neutral-site matchup at Louisville’s Trager Stadium.


East Carolina: Following the Pirates’ 70-41 win against North Carolina, junior Zeek Bigger was named the Walter Camp Football Foundation FBS National Defensive Player of the Week. Bigger recorded a career-best 17 tackles (seven solo) and returned an interception 46 yards for a touchdown.


Wake Forest: Maksim Kan won his consolation bracket on the final day of the UVa Ranked +1 Invitational.

After falling in the opening round Friday, Kan swept his next six singles sets en route to three straight match wins and a consolation title. In the consolation final, Kan defeated No. 91 Francisco Dias, 6-2, 6-3.

Christian Seraphim also competed Sunday, earning a victory to claim seventh in his singles draw. He defeated Virginia’s Luca Corinteli 6-4, 7-5 to close the tournament on a winning note.
