BERLIN, Md. – A career-best four-under-par 68 by Bentley University senior Cal Meyers (Richfield, Wisc./Slinger HS) during the final round of the St. Thomas Aquinas Spring Invitational Sunday helped the Falcon captain earn his fourth career tournament victory.

Meyers turned in a 71-68-139 and Miranda followed at two-under with a 69-73-142. In a field of 63, he was the only player to shoot better than 71 during the second round.
Meyers' strong showing helped Bentley finish fifth among 13 teams with a score of 302-308-610. Concordia College (N.Y.) and Dominican College (N.Y.) were co-champions at 597, and Wilmington University (Del.) was third, four strokes back.
