Ballingall shot a 1-under-par 215 to finish atop the individual standings. He was the only golfer to finish under par. Three of the top- six individual scores in the tournament belonged to Missouri.
The Tigers finished the three-day competition with a 21-over-par 885. The University of Richmond earned second-place, 12 shots behind Missouri.
Freshman Jace Long (219) was fourth, and sophomore Chris Johnson (222) was sixth. The win was the first for Missouri since the fall season in 2005.
