The Morning Stake: Soares and Dojas to Play for National Championship; Women’s Golf Hopes to Make Top 15

I hope everyone has a terrific Memorial Day holiday. I hope you take a moment to remember those who gave their lives in battle.


Soares and Dojas Advance to Finals.  Congrats to Felipe Soares and Hug Dojas who defeated Michigan State’s Harry Jadun and John Patrick Mullane, 6-3 and 6-2 on Sunday and will play for a National Championship against Texas Lloyd Glasspool and Soren Hess-Olesen today for a National Championship. Here’s Soares:

“It’s amazing,” Soares expressed. “We’ve been working towards this tournament since the beginning of the season. I feel we have prepared ourselves very well for this and now we’re just having an awesome week.”

They’ll play after the singles match for the national title and that singles match is set to begin at noon.


Women’s Golf at 12th Overall. There’s going to be a lot more information at the link, but the women are sitting at 12th overall, which puts them squarely in competition to make the final 15 to be able to compete in the match play today. The problem is that they had to suspend play yesterday and there are teams that could push them out of that top 15 spot (I think):

Only three of the six unfinished teams – USC (+28), Duke (+31) and Tennessee (+44) – are ahead of Tech in the current standings. The Lady Raiders are eight strokes clear of the current cut line at +64 and have already finished ahead of the nine teams needed to stay inside the top 15.

The six teams who have not finished the third round will head back out to The Concesseion Golf Club at 7:30 a.m. ET Monday to complete it and any playoff scenarios. The fourth and final round of stroke play competition will be cut to the top 15 teams after three full rounds and begin at 10:50 a.m. ET.

If Tech stays in 12th place, it would tee off on No. 10 beginning at 11:40 a.m. ET alongside 10th-place Northwestern and 11th-place Arkansas.

If they do make the cut, the ladies will be on the Golf Channel starting today at 4:00 pm
