ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Wrapping up play at the Wolverine Intercollegiate, the Indiana men's golf team moved into eighth place in the 15-team field with a 1-over-par 285 on Sunday. Entering the final round in a tie for ninth, the Hoosiers finished the tournament at 862 (291-286-285) on the University of Michigan Golf Course (par 71, 6,704 yards).
The host Michigan Wolverines captured the team title, closing the event with a 13-under 839 total (277-275-287). Xavier (288-283-279) and Charlotte (289-276-285) tied for second place, 11 shots back.
Despite shooting a final-round 77, Jorge Campillo garnered the top Hoosier finish, tying for 22nd at 215. Rounds of 70 and 68 on Saturday helped the freshman corral his third straight top-25 finish.
Following Campillo, freshman Drew Allenspach notched his third consecutive top-30 result, claiming a 73 on the final day. The Sugar Land, Texas, native posted a 71 and 72 in rounds one and two, respectively, giving him a 216 total and a share of 26th place.
Scott Seibert carded a 72 on the final 18, moving him into a tie for 50th. The senior netted a 221 and played the final 36 holes in 1-over after opening with a 78.
Competing in his first collegiate event, Pike tied for 63rd. In addition to shooting a 1-under on Sunday, the freshman shot a 79 and 75 on Saturday to post a 224 54-hole total.
As an individual, freshman Seth Brandon turned in a final-round 76 and finished at 221 (74-71-76).
"We have some growing pains we have to figure out," Indiana head coach Mike Mayer said. "However, I'm happy with our play today, especially with our number one golfer, Jorge Campillo, struggling through a rough round. It was good to see Bradon come back with a solid final round, and Santiago played well today."
Up next, the Hoosiers will participate in the Big Ten/Pac-10 Challenge for the second straight year on Monday-Tuesday, Oct. 3-4. The event welcomes the top teams from the Big Ten and Pac-10 competing against each other at The Glen Club in Chicago.
