Walters finished in a tie for first and had a playoff with William Penn’s Frederik Lundsgaard who would come out on top. The Tarkington native now has eight rounds at par or better for his career and is third all-time in program history.

LETU placed four in the top-12 with a trio of juniors including Chris Clark <http://www.letuathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=3328> (70-82-152) who finished in 11th overall.
