From Times Staff and Wire Reports

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- UCLA’s Kevin Chappell shot a 76 on Saturday to wrap up the NCAA men’s individual golf championship and help the Bruins hold off Pacific 10 Conference rivals Stanford and USC for the team title.

Chappell finished at two-under-par 286. The Pac-10 player of the year was the only player to finish under par.

For UCLA, it was the third team title won in May and a nation-leading 103rd overall for the school. On May 11, the women’s water polo team won its fourth straight NCAA title and on May 20, the women’s tennis team won its first NCAA team title.

UCLA finished the four-day men’s golf tournament with a 42-over score of 1,194, one stroke better than second-place finisher and defending champion Stanford, which was five strokes back on Friday. USC was two back, and Oklahoma State and Clemson rounded out the top five.
