OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Princeton carded a final round 288 on Sunday to finish with the lowest score at the Ivy League Men's Golf Championship since 2009, winning the 2013 title by five shots over Yale.

Junior Greg Jarmas led the way for the Tigers, earning medalist honors with a final round 70 to finish at 213. Jarmas became the first Tiger to win medalist honors since Creighton Page in 2005. The Tigers, which earned the League's automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Men's Golf Regionals, won the team title for the first time since 2006.

Jarmas recorded 14 pars on the final day, but it was his birdie on 18th hole that put the Tigers in pouncing position. One of the toughest holes throughout the tournament, Jarmas' birdie on 18 created quite a roar. About the same time, a couple of bogeys by Yale flipped the teams in the standings and suddenly the Tigers were in the clubhouse with the score to beat.

Freshman Quinn Prchal, who was voted the League's Rookie of the Year by the coaches earlier in the day, carded the Princeton's low round again on Sunday and tied for the day's lowest round. He shot a one-under par 69 to perfectly complement Jarmas' 70. After starting with an opening round 78, Prchal's 70 in the second round and 69 on the final day pulled him all the way up to a tie for fourth place and a spot on the All-Ivy first team.

Yale finished second in the team standings at 888, one shot better than Penn. Columbia was fourth, followed by Dartmouth fifth, Harvard sixth and Cornell and Brown tied for seventh.

The Quakers' duo of junior Max Marsico and senior P.J. Fielding tied for second at 216, three shots off the pace, and earned first-team All-Ivy honors. Fielding tied with Prchal for low round honors on Sunday. Dartmouth's James Pleat continued his consistant play with a round of 72 on Sunday, following up on consecutive rounds of 73, to earn first-team All-Ivy.

Yale junior Sam Bernstein was unanimously voted Player of the Year earlier in the day by the League's coaches. He earned second-team All-Ivy honors for his sixth-place finish, shooting a 54-hole total of 219.

Bernstein is joined on the second team by Columbia sophomore Brandon Jowers and freshman Harrison Shih, Brown senior Nelson Hargrove and Dartmouth sophomore Charlie Edler.
