Tringale, a sophomore from Laguna Niguel, Calif., had seven birdies on his card Sunday, six of them coming on par-4 holes, and finished 54 holes at 3-under-par 213, tied for 19th place. Cohan, a sophomore from Wayne, Pa., blistered the back nine with an eagle at No. 10 and three birdies in posting a career-best 68.

Roberto Castro, a senior from Alpharetta, Ga., and Taylor Hall, a sophomore from LaGrange, Ga., each carded even-par 72s for Tech’s other two counting scores in the final round, while senior Kevin Larsen finished with a 78.
