"I have been around a long time and I have seen a lot of great tournament and great players and this is perhaps the most impressive performance that I have ever seen," Indiana head coach Mike Mayer said. "And I have seen some very good players in my time. He had complete control of what he was doing on this golf course. I never thought anyone would come close to shooting 202 on this golf course. That is an unbelievable score and record that he tied. That was impressive."
Peaper fired rounds of 65, 70 and 67 on his way to the 202, with his first round score matching his career best. His final round was also a career-best for a final round as he collected his second career tournament victory.
Corey Ziedonis finished in a tie eighth place with a total score of 215 (73-70-72) while Michael McGee tied for 17th place with 219 (73-72-74).

"It was another great team effort on a very tough golf course. It was tough to follow up a win and it is really hard to win collegiate tournaments. But we really fought hard and we kept our composure and were patient and in the end, we didn't do as well as Illinois."
The Hoosiers also had three players competing as individuals this weekend and Andrew Fogg led that charge for the Hoosiers with a overall score of 221 (80-67-74) to tie for 23rd position.
