The Blue Raiders, who finished ahead of 15th ranked Baylor and 42nd ranked ETSU, had a 19-under score of 845 which ranked as the fifth best 54-hole total in school history.

"I am very proud of the way we competed," said Head Coach Whit Turnbow. "This is a strong way to end the fall season and now we can carry that momentum into the spring."
