Last Time Out - Wolverine Intercollegiate
Despite shooting a final-round 77, Jorge Campillo garnered the top Hoosier finish for the third time in as many tournaments, 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.
Can't Stop Campillo
Making his collegiate debut, Campillo led the Hoosiers with a tie for 15th at the NCAA Central Regional Preview (Sept. 12-13). The Caceres, Spain, native's finish marked the best for a freshman playing in his first event since Ryan Cassidy tied for sixth place at the 2000 Legends Intercollegiate.
Campillo followed that performance up with a tie for 14th at the Gopher Invitational (Sept. 17-18) and a share of 22nd at the Wolverine Intercollegiate (Sept. 24-25).
