BRYAN, Texas -- University of Houston senior Michael Perras posted a 73 in the Final Round and closed out his collegiate career with a 24th-place finish at the NCAA Bryan Regional at Traditions Club on Wednesday afternoon.

Perras, who was one of 10 individuals to compete at the NCAA Bryan Regional, finished with a three-day, 54-hole score of 218 on the 7,121-yard course.

The Deer Park, Texas, native ended his career among the Cougars' top-10 career leaders in strokes (10,675), stroke average (72.13) and rounds (148).

Perras battled through six pars and a pair of bogeys through his first eight holes before draining a birdie on the par-4 ninth hole.

Following a bogey on No. 10 and consecutive pars, Perras drained another birdie on the 407-yard 14th hole and rallied from a bogey on No. 16 with a birdie on the par-4 17th hole.

Host and second-ranked Texas A&M captured the team title with a score of 837 after posting a team round of 279 for the third straight day. No. 14 Clemson (846), No. 11 Baylor (857) No. 26 UCLA (866) and No. 23 Kentucky (874) finished among the Top-5 leaders and advanced to the NCAA Championships.

No. 34 Mississippi (877), No. 38 South Carolina (882), Mississippi State (885), UNCW (886) and Northern Colorado (904) rounded out the Top-10 teams.

Eighth-ranked Chandler Phillips earned medalist honors with a score of 11-under 205 after posting a 69 Wednesday, his third straight round in the 60s. Doc Redman (Clemson) and Brandon Smith (Texas A&M) tied for second at 206, while Braden Thornberry (Mississippi) finished fourth at 207.

McNeese's Blake Elliott was the leading individual not on a qualifying team with a score of 208, tying with Clemson's Bryson Nimmer.
