The Lords finished the weekend with a team score of 587 following a 296 on Saturday and a 291 on Sunday, outlasting Depauw and Franklin College, which tied for second with a 596 score.
Leading the scoring for the Lords was Ryan Muthiora ’18, who tallied a 74 (+3) on Saturday and improved with a 68 (-3) on Sunday, landing him second on the individual score sheet.
