LOVELAND, Ohio - - Tyler Witman finished sixth individually with a 54-hole total of 207 to lead the University of Maryland to a third-place finish in the team standings Tuesday at the Xavier Invitational men's golf tournament.

Witman, a Terrapin senior, fired a 73 on the final day to complete a 9-under-par total of 207 and earn his top-10 finish.

As a team, Maryland shot a 290 in the third round to finish at 843 overall, 13 shots behind Xavier. The host team blistered the par-72 layout for a 270 team score and won the event by 10 strokes over Austin Peay.

Also for the Terrapins on Tuesday, Hunter Bendall fired a 72 for a 211 total and a tie for 16th place individually, while Matt Schall also got a top-20 finish with a tie for 18th and a 212 total. Tully Coyle finished at 216 and a tie for 36th, while J.J. Occi matched Bendall for the Terps' best round of the day with his 72 giving him a 220 total and a tie for 53rd.

Individually, Xavier held down the top two spots on the leaderboard, as Jason Kokrak finished with a 14-under-par total of 202 following a final-round 68, with teammate John Streibich one stroke behind after a 67 on Tuesday.

Maryland continues its fall season on Oct. 8 and 9 when it plays in the Coca-Cola Duke Classic.
