Senior Greg Fehrman went out in style, ending his Jackrabbit career with an eagle on the par-5 18th hole.
Fehrman tied for 15th place with a three-day total of 230, carding rounds of 75, 79 and 76. He was named to the All-Summit League Second Team on Sunday.

Kuehn was named Tournament Champion with his line of 69-78-69-216 (even par). Rozner took Newcomer of the Tournament and runner-up honors after finishing one stroke behind teammate Kuehn.
