Larson's 140 total (69-71) finished second among 103 players and first among 65 golfers from eight MIAC teams. Nebraska Wesleyan's Alex Kubik (72-67/139) edged Larson by one stroke for medalist honors.

UST's three teams finished first, eighth and 12th place and put three players in the top 13. Herb (72-73/145) tied for fifth and Ben Kisla (77-70/147) tied for 10th. Kusla's closing-day 70 was Sunday's third-best score of the torunament.
