WALLACE, N.C. - Donnie Shin earned a tie for fifth individually with a 54-hole total of 1-under-par 215 to lead University of Maryland finishers Sunday at the River Landing Intercollegiate men's golf tournament hosted by NC State.

Shin closed with an even-par 72 on Sunday and ended play as one of 10 golfers to finish under par in the event. It was the second straight top-five finish for the freshman, who tied for second three weeks ago at the George Washington Invitational.

As a team, Maryland finished 10th in the 15-team field with a three-round total of 887. The Terrapins shot 294 in Sunday's final round, led by a 4-under-par 68 by freshman Andrew Kay, who had the best 18-hole score of the event by a Maryland player and who was bested in Sunday's round by only one other player in the field.

Kay, posting his best round as a collegian, moved up 24 spots on the leaderboard to tie for 40th at 222. Junior Chris Gold tied for 30th overall at 220 after closing with a 75 on Sunday, while Tom Hanna III finished 74th at 232 with a 79 on Sunday. Sophomore Brendan Tracy was forced to withdraw from the final two rounds with an injury.

Senior Adam Cohn, playing as an individual, tied for 54th with a 225 total after a 76 on Sunday.

Duke fired the best team round of the tournament, posting a 277 to finish at 851 and win the team competition. The Blue Devils finished nine strokes ahead of NC State and 13 shots better than Memphis.

Michael Schachner of Duke birdied the lone playoff hole to claim medalist honors. He and Webb Simpson of Wake Forest finished at 209, with Jonas Blixt of Florida State and Kent Copeland of NC State in third at 211.

Maryland and six other teams in the River Landing field head to the Atlantic Coast Conference Championships, which start Friday at the Old North State Club.
