The sophomore finished with an 85 Tuesday, totaling 162 strokes over the two-day event, tying for 89th overall. Allyn was one of three Panthers to log one birdie, as he also led the team with 21 pars.

Freshman Charlie Bullerdick (New Market, Ind.) recorded his lone birdie Tuesday, en route to a score of 80. Bullerdick's second round score was an 11-stroke improvement from Monday, as he finished with 171 strokes, to tie for 105th place.

Rounding out the scoring for HC were freshmen Jake Jones (Oregonia, Ohio) and Case Carter (Austin, Ind.). Jones posted a new career low, 36-hole score of 174 (84-90), while Carter finished with a two-round total of 191 (100-91).

No. 6 Methodist (N.C.) won the team tournament, besting the field of 20 teams, including eight inside the top 40 national rankings, with a score of 580 (290-290). Huntingdon's (Ala.) Mark Connelly fired a two-day score of 139 (68-71) to win medalist honors.
