Louisville, Ky -
The University of Louisville men's golf team set a school record for the lowest tournament score with an 834 en route to winning the Cardinal Intercollegiate for the second time in school history and the first since 2004.
The 834 mark was a new school record, which was the best since Louisville carded 836 as a team at the Pioneer Classic in 2005-06. For the tournament, Louisville shot 281-280-273=834.
The Cardinals, who entered the day tied with Denver for tournament lead, fired 273 (second-lowest total in school history) to win the trophy by nine strokes over Eastern Kentucky and Kansas State. Denver finished in fourth-place at 846 and Indiana was fifth with 848.
Louisville had four of their five players shoot under 70 on Tuesday.
"I'm extremely proud of the way our guys responded today to win this tournament," said head coach Mark Crabtree. "We were tied with EKU after nine holes and our guys responded with a bunch of birdies to take hold of the tournament. I'm excited about this new school record and winning our tournament for just the second time ever."
Trey Bowling of Eastern Kentucky shot a tournament record 65-70-65=200 to take home medalist honors, while Robert Streb of Kansas State was four shots back at 69-69-66=204.
The Cardinals were led by senior Adam Hadwin, who finished in a tie for fourth-place. Hadwin shot a 10-under par 68-69-69=206, which was tied for the fourth-lowest 54-hole score in team history.
Sophomore Karsten Clements rallied with a 67 on Tuesday to finish at 8-under par. He carded 70-71-67=208.
