Peter Webb (Madison, Wis./James Madison Memorial) and Nick Seitz (Xenia, Ohio/Carroll) followed closely behind their two teammates. Webb finished with a 70 on Tuesday, the best individual round score for the team, and ended with a total of 225. Seitz recorded a 76 over the final 18 holes and ended up with a tournament total of 226. Wrapping up Valpo’s effort was Zach Cutler (O’Fallon, Mo./Timberland) who carded a 76 in the final round and a 54-hole total of 235.
