    Final Leaderboard

    CHARDON, Ohio - Playing in his first collegiate tournament, freshman Jorge Campillo garnered a tie for 15th as the Indiana men's golf team finished in 11th place at the NCAA Central Regional Preview. Campillo finished with a 218 (75-71-72), and IU claimed an 894 (300-297-297) at the Sand Ridge Golf Club (par 71, 7,085 yards).

    Louisville earned the title in the 17-team field at 871 (293-296-282), holding off TCU (284-290-298) by one stroke and Kent State (295-285-294) by three shots. Gary Woodland of Kansas earned medalist honors with an 11-under-par 202 (67-66-69), three strokes ahead of Kansas State's Ben Kern (68-68-69).

    Campillo started the final round in a tie for the 21st spot but made a move up the leaderboard with a 1-over-par 72. His finish is the best for a freshman making his collegiate debut since Ryan Cassidy tied for sixth place at the 2000 Legends Intercollegiate.

    "Jorge had a good tournament for his first outing," Indiana head coach Mike Mayer said. "He opened the tournament with a double bogey but played very well the final 53 holes. Jorge didn't play his best golf, but he still turned in a great effort."

    Sophomore Santiago Quirarte turned in the lowest round of any Hoosier at the event, firing a 1-under 70 to move into a share of 32nd. The Queretaro, Mexico, native concluded the tournament with a 223 three-round total (76-77-70).

    Quirarte played the backside 2-under with birdies at the par-4 10th and 16th holes. He added a birdie at the par-4 No. 7 following his only blemish of the day, a double bogey at the par-4 fifth.

     

     

    Also making his Indiana debut, Drew Allenspach turned in a fine performance. The freshman collected a tie for 22nd after rounds of 73, 71 and 76.

    "We played a great golf course that provided a good test," Allenspach said. "I played o.k. I had a decent day yesterday and struggled some today. It showed me what college golf is all about and where the team and I need to improve. I thought it was a good learning experience."

    Rounding out the lineup, walk-on junior Aaron Harrell placed in a tie for 70th at 234 (76-78-80), while freshman Seth Brandon carded a 237 (78-81-78) to claim a share of 77th place.

    "This was a pretty demanding golf course and an excellent field, and we weren't up to the task just yet." Mayer said. "We took a young team, and we learned a lot. There were absolutely some positives, starting with the play of Jorge and Drew. Santiago came back today with a strong round, and we needed that. This team will definitely get better and has a bright future."

    Indiana returns to the links on Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 17-18, at the Gopher Invitational hosted by Minnesota. The teams will tee off at 8:30 a.m. both days and live scoring of the event will be available through golfstat.com.
