He tied for 31st with a 54-hole score of 220, his lowest collegiate score for a 54-hole event. Freshman Mike Donner also shot 74 on Sunday and earned a tie for 60th in just his second collegiate tournament.
Yale ran away with the team title, defeating second-place Dartmouth by 24 strokes. The Bulldogs shot 839 for the tournament, which is 13-under par. Dartmouth took second-place with a strong showing on Sunday that allowed the Big Green to move up four spots on the team leaderboard, while Saint Joseph's, Bucknell and St. Bonaventure rounded out the top-five teams.
