The Crusaders shot a final round 314 to finish at 928 for the 54-hole event, one stroke behind sixth place Butler and one shot ahead of Youngstown State.  Loyola (Chicago) won the team title with a three-round total of 909, two shots ahead of runner-up Green Bay.  Cleveland State was third at 915, three shots ahead of Detroit, while Wright State was fifth at 924.

Three players shared the team’s low round of 78 on Sunday over the 6,846-yard, par-72 layout.  Austin Gaugert (Lake Geneva, Wis./Badger H.S.) tied for the team’s low tournament honors with Kyle Henning (Brookfield, Wis./East H.S.) as both posted 54-hole totals of 230 to tie for 16th place.  Gaugert posted one of the day’s 78s while Henning fired  a final round 80.

Thomas Wettstein (Neenah, Wis./Xavier H.S.) and Brad Winters (Elgin, Ill./Saint Edward H.S.) both carded 78s as  well in the final round.  Wettstein finished the tournament at 234, one stroke ahead of Winters.
