As a team, the Blue Jays finished 17 out of 17 teams. The team as a whole was 59 shots over par. Rutgers-Camden University took home the team title, defeating Swarthmore College by two strokes. One of Franklin & Marshall’s two teams entered finished third overall.
Swarthmore’s Nick DiMaio took home the individual championship with a four-under round of 67. There was a tie for first in the individual standings as DiMaio and Rutgers-Camden’s Kevin Sarlo both shot 67. However, DiMaio won the tiebreaker, which was the golfer with a better back nine score.
