Sophomore Ryan Stovash topped the leaderboard for UCF for the fourth-consecutive event as he finished the tied for 20th in the 78-player field. He shot 3-under 213 through three rounds.

Senior Linus Vaisanen finished tied for 42nd with a 2-over 218 after having dropped 12 spots due to a final round of 3-over 75. Sophomore Federico Zucchetti finished another three strokes back with a 5-over 221. He finished tied for 52nd. Freshman Manuel Elvira shot 8-over 224 and landed in a tie for 61st, while senior Jose Joia closed out the Knights tied for 68th with a 12-over 228.

The Knights will begin the American Athletic Conference Championship tournament on April 26 in Lecanto, Fla.
