PRIMM, Nev. − After finishing second last season, the IUPUI men won its third Summit League Championship by defeating Southern Utah in a team playoff on hole No. 18 of the Desert Course at the Primm Valley Golf Club. On the women's side, Oral Roberts won its record 15th-straight league crown by four strokes over North Dakota State on the Lakes Course.

IUPUI senior Michael Davan became the second-straight Jaguar golfer to win Championship MVP honors after firing a league 54-hole record 205 (64-71-70). The other members of the all-tournament team included IUPUI's Ben Engle (207), Oral Roberts' Scott Newell (208), Oakland's Nick Cunningham (211), Southern Utah's Jake Holt (211) and Western Illinois' Ben Kilborn (211). With his third-place finish, Newell won Newcomer of the Championship, while IUPUI's John Andrews won his third Coach of the Year honor. Four men's teams beat the previous team record score of 860 (IUPUI, SUU, ORU, IPFW) set in 2009 and 2011.

North Dakota State's Amy Anderson won her second consecutive Championship MVP with her three-round 218 (72-70-76) on the women's side. Southern Utah's Monica Jung (221) placed second to earn the Newcomer of the Championship award, while ORU's Lance Watson captured the Coach of the Year award. Oral Roberts' Tiffany Robbins and Alheli Moreno and Western Illinois' Kristi Tschudin all tied for third with a 223 to earn all-tournament team honors.

The Jaguars earn The Summit League's automatic bid to the 2012 NCAA Men's Golf Regionals which take place May 17-19, while the Golden Eagles will participate in the 2012 NCAA Women's Regionals from May 10-12.
