Guilford had five golfers among the top 18 finishers in the 90-man field, led by rookies Tanner Gross and Ty Palmer, who shared seventh place after shooting 11-over-par 227.

Cumberlands, ranked No. 4 in NAIA, won the tournament with a 36-hole total of 653, while Wittenberg, ranked No. 20 in NCAA Division III, finished in second at 671.
