Waikoloa Village, Hawai'i - Seth Reeves shot a 5-under-par 67 Saturday, and fellow senior Bo Andrews added a 3-under-par 69 as Georgia Tech shot 7-under-par 281 as a team and finished tied for seventh place at the Amer Ari Invitational.

The performance by Reeves, coupled with his 6-under 66 Friday, moved him into a tie for 16th place individually at 9-under-par 207, seven strokes behind medalist Jordan Niebrugge of Oklahoma State (16-under 200).

The No. 3-ranked Cowboys blistered the Kings Course at Waikola Village Saturday to the tune of 17-under-par 271. Oklahoma State finished 54 holes at 45-under-par 819, 12 strokes better than 19th-ranked Washingtin (33-under 831). Oregon, TCU and No. 24 Southern California tied for third place at 29-under 835, followed by No. 27 Auburn (-28).

Tech (-27) finished in a four-way tie for seventh with No. 11 Stanford, No. 15 UCLA and No. 16 Texas. Nine of the 20 teams in the field are ranked among the nation's top 30 teams in Division I.

"We played the hard part of the course really well today and set ourselves up for a strong finish," said head coach Bruce Heppler, whose team was tied for 15th place after the opening round. "We just didn't take care of the holes coming home. In the end, we dug ourselves too deep a hole the first day."

Tech's other scores Saturday included an even-par 72 from Ollie Schniederjans and a pair of 73s from Anders Albertson and Vincent Whaley. Whaley playing for the first time as a counting member of the travel team, had a strong tournament with a 54-hole score of 6-under-par 210. The freshman from McKinney, Texas, tied for 30th place individually along with Schniederjand, while Andrews tied for 42nd at 4-under 212.
