“Overall, we struggled this week and did not perform to the level we would have liked to,” said Utah head coach Garrett Clegg. “It is great that our top two finishers this week are freshmen. As a team, we look forward to improving over the summer and getting ourselves ready for next year. We also want to congratulate Nate [Wunderli] on finishing his collegiate career today and wish the best for him.”
Freshman Tristan Mandur registered Utah's sole round under par on Wednesday, recording 2-under par (69) in the final round. Mandur finished in a tie for 34th place with a combined score of 1-over par (70-71-75-69=285).

In a field that included six of the top-30 teams in the country, No. 23-ranked USC came away with the conference title with a combined score of 31-under par (347-340-351-351=1389). Colorado (-27) finished four strokes shy of first place, while No. 22 Arizona State (-23) finished in third place.
