The Lobos finished the three-round tournament at 14-under-par 850 (284-285-281). Boneta, a junior from Barcelona, Spain, finished 6-under 210 (70-71-69—210). Choi (71-73-67—211) tied for second with Thomas Hutchinson of UC Davis.

For winning the individual title, Boneta receives an exemption into next year’s Barracuda Championship, the Lake Tahoe stop on the PGA Tour. That event will be July 14-17 at the Tahoe Mountain Club in Truckee, Calif.
