The tournament begins on Friday, April 15th in Augusta, Ga. Their first match will be at 5 p.m. against Georgia College.
“I feel confident facing Georgia College again in the first round,” David Cotrone said. “We had a competitive match against them Monday and I feel we have the momentum heading into the tournament, it should be a good first round match.”
