Scotty Williams was atop the leader board heading into Saturday's final round, but shot 81 on Saturday and finished sixth overall at 73-67-81--221.
Freshman Max Marsico and Colin St. Maxens tied for eighth overall, both carding 224, while Dillon Hakes finished alone in 13th place and matched Fielding's low score on Saturday. He carded 75-78-73--226 for the event.
Three Penn players were in the tournament and played as individuals. Senior Kevin Huntington shot 72-79-76--227 and finished in 15th, while Philip Winter was 23rd (80-71-83--234) and Geoff Locher tied for 25th (77-81-79--237).
