No. 1 Alabama continued their dominance of the island tournament as they shot an outstanding 45-under-par to take home the tournament title. No. 3 Georgia Tech (-41) and No. 7 Georgia (-29) maintained their positions in second and third place. Missouri's ninth-place Tie was also better than nationally-ranked teams, No. 33 Northwestern and No. 43 North Carolina.
Emilio Cuartero (E) stepped up his game in Tuesday's final round for Missouri. The senior captain played his best 18 holes of the event, shooting a 68 (-4) to jump into a tie for 30th.
Joining Cuartero in 30th was Wilson Sundvold (E). The redshirt sophomore had one of his most consistent tournament efforts of the season, finishing at par (or better) for the second time this year.
