Wes Korth, a senior from Cookeville and Tech’s leader after each of the first two rounds, closed the tourney with a final round 80 and tied for 48th place at 223.

Dunn, also a senior from Cookeville, was one shot back at 224, tied for 55th, followed by Heatherly and Travis Ramsey, who were tied for 80th place at 232.

Stetson cruised to the team title with an 841, five shots better than Wofford (846). James Madison (859) was third, followed by Campbell (861) and Belmont Abbey (863) in the Top Five.
