WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -

The Tigers won the event with a final-round 285 and a total of 861.
Edin fired a course-record 63 and tied the school record set by Fred Wampler on April 27, 1949. Edin recorded eight birdies, one eagle and one bogey during his round. He won the event by four strokes over Indiana's Jeff Overton.
Edin totaled 207 strokes over the three rounds, which tied teammate Bobby Bennett for the second-lowest 54-hole total in school history. Bennett posted a 207 during the fall season.
Not to be overshadowed, sophomore Pariya Junhasavasdikul finished fourth overall. He fired back-to-back 70s on Saturday and closed with a final-round 73. Senior Dustin Cone placed seventh after a total of 216. He fired a final-round 72.
Sophomore Peter Richardson tied for 16th overall. He fired a final-round 73 and totaled 221 strokes. Freshman Santiago Russi and Bennett both recorded a 70 on Sunday. Russi tied for 23rd overall and Bennett tied for 38th.
