The Rams finished 11-over (875) for the tournament, two shots better than second place UConn.

Iona finished in fourth, however Colin Sutyla did not play in the tournament.
Bryant University finished in 13th.
In the final round, the Rams were led by Jordan Brajcich, who posted a two-over 74.
His birdie on the 18th hole was a major reason why the Rams were able to hold on for the win.
Brajcich finished in a tie for 9th overall.
For the tournament, the Rams were led by Bryson Richards who finished in a tie for sixth.
That is despite posting a final round 76.
