Wooster opened play with a 310 on Sunday, and followed with a 305 on Monday to finish at 615, one shot better than Otterbein University.

First-year Colin O'Hern continued to impress and was in the hunt for medalist honors before settling for eighth-place. O'Hern opened play with a 73 on Sunday and was three shots off the lead. On Monday, the first-year carded a 75 to finish at 148.

Sophomore Evan Jenkins turned in the Scots' low round of the tournament with an even par 72 on Monday. That marked a 19-stroke bounce-back from an uncharacteristic 91 on Sunday. Jenkins' 163 placed him in a tie for 56th-place.

Sophomore Jimmy Hinton rounded out the lineup with a 164, good for a tie for 60th-place. Hinton improved upon his opening-round 83 with an 81 on Monday.
