Liberty's Isaiah Logue finished the event tied for eighth place, his third top-10 finish of the 2015 fall season.

Little movement took place on the upper half of the leaderboard during Sunday's final round at the David Toms Intercollegiate where Liberty finished in third place.

The top four teams in the field maintained the same positions they held heading into Sunday's final round at the University Club Golf Course (par 72, 7,001 yards).

Tournament host LSU was the only team in the 14-team field to break par on Sunday, posting a 2-under par 864 to widen its lead.

The Tigers under-par score allowed LSU to claim the team title on its home course by 16 strokes with a winning score of even par 864 (295-283-286).

Kansas State took second place with a 16-over par 880 (291-297-292), followed by Liberty, who finished in third place with a 22-over par 886 (288-301-297).

Iowa finished in fourth place with a 26-over par 890 (292-300-298) and Louisiana used a solid round on Sunday to move into fifth place with a 36-over par 900 (306-306-288).

LSU's Eric Ricard continued to showcase his talent on his home course, carding a 4-under par 68 on Sunday to win individual medalist honors by seven strokes. His winning score was a 10-under par 206 (73-65-68).

Kansas State's Jeremy Gandon (71-73-69) and LSU's Nathan Jeansoone (69-71-73) shared second place with a 3-under par 213.

Liberty's Isaiah Logue and Payton Taylor were two of the four players to finish the event tied for eighth place with a 5-over par 221.

Logue (74-81-66) fired the low round of the day on Sunday, a 6-under par 66, to post his third straight top-10 finish of the fall season. Logue birdied nine of the 18 holes he played on Sunday, helping Liberty finish the event with a tournament best 55 birdies.

Taylor posted the first top 10 finish of his career since joining Liberty's roster last spring. The sophomore's top 10 finish was due in part to his strong play on the par-5 holes, as he finished the event ranked second in the field with a 4.50 scoring average.

The only player in the field better on par-5 holes than Taylor was Liberty's Michael DeMorat (4.42 stroke average), who finished the event in 15th place with a 7-over par 223 (73-77-73).

Gabe Lench and Adam Eineving closed out the event for Liberty. Lench finished tied for 20th place with a 10-over par 226 (69-74-83). Eineving made his first start of the season for Liberty and placed tied for 50th place with an 18-over par 234 (72-81-81).

The Flames will make the program's first-ever trip to Hawaii the next time they return to the golf course. Liberty is scheduled to participate in the Ka'anapali Classic Collegiate Invitational, Nov. 6-8, at the Ka'anapali Golf Course in Maui, Hawaii.
