PINEHURST, N.C.- Virginia Tech shot a three-round total of 12-over-par 876 and won the Pinehurst Intercollegiate by Gatorade at the 7,009-year, par 72 Centennial Pinehurst Number 8 Course at the Pinehurst Resort on Sunday afternoon. The Hokies shot a final-round six-over-par 294 and overcame a two stroke lead by Penn State entering the final round.
The victory was the Hokies' first tournament title since October of 2007, when they won back-to-back events at The Ridges and Landfall. Freshman Mikey Moyers (Stanardsville, Va.) finished with a three-day total of two-under-par 214 and finished in second place, one stroke behind Robert Hoadley of UNC Greensboro.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida State's Seath Lauer and Wesley Graham led Sunday's winning charge to the Seminole Intercollegiate tournament championship in a suspense-filled finish at Southwood Golf Course.
The Seminoles won their third tournament of the school year, slipping past South Carolina by a one-stroke margin after top-ranked golfer Brooks Koepka was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard, negating what would have been a nine-shot victory. Florida State had already secured the team title - its second Seminole Intercollegiate in three seasons - when South Carolina's Paul Woodbury outlasted Lauer with on the fourth playoff hole. Lauer, the Seminoles' senior captain, shared low-stroke honors with Woodbury at 1-under, 212 after 54 holes. Woodbury won with a par on the 427-yard 18th hole; the fourth time the duo traversed the par-four finishing hole.
The University of North Carolina men's golf team finished tied for seventh place with an 887 total after carding a 307 in the final round of the Seminole Intercollegiate. Tar Heel Jack Fields, who held the individual lead after the first two rounds, slipped to a tie for third place, finishing just one stroke out of first place. Fields, a sophomore from Southern Pines, N.C., carded a five-over-par 76 in the final round after earlier rounds of 66-71 to finish at even par 213.
The Tar Heels, tied for third going into Sunday's final round, slipped to a tie for seventh place with Baylor as both teams carded 887 totals.
