Of those schools only Bethany and Ottawa had the proper 5 players. Still with a total score of 373 the Builders had a lower composite score, which in golf is good, then every school except Kansas Wesleyan with 341 and who only had 4 golfers. The closest school in the running with 5 players was Ottawa University with a score of 385.
