    EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Junior Dillon Dougherty (Woodland, Calif./Woodland) fired one of Sunday's best rounds at the 37th Annual Bruce Fossum/TaylorMade Invitational, carding an even-par 72 to finish 13th among the 73-player field. As a team, the Wildcats placed 10th in the 14-team field, and eighth among the nine Big Ten teams entered in the tournament.

    The Wildcats, ranked 42nd in the latest Golfweek/Sagarin index, now turn their attention to the Big Ten Championships, which begin Friday in Ann Arbor, Mich. Northwestern will need a strong performance at next weekend's tournament to help its bid for an NCAA regional berth, says head coach Pat Goss.

    Dougherty finished with a 7-over 223 (76-75-72). He has now placed eighth, 11th and 13th in three of his last four tournaments -- he has five top-15 finishes overall this year.

    Senior Tom Johnson (Sacramento, Calif./Del Campo), who has four top-15 finishes this spring, placed 56th at this weekend's tournament, shooting an 18-over 234 (79-77-78). Freshman David Merkow (Hartland, Wis./Arrowhead Union) and senior Casey Strunk (Phoenix, Ariz./Thunderbird) tied for 31st with 12-over 228's. Merkow had rounds of 75, 74 and 79, while Strunk carded 18-hole scores of 78, 74 and 76.

    Senior T.C. Ford (Covington, La./Mandeville) placed 53rd with a 17-over 233 (78-77-78).

    Indiana, which was led by tourney champion Jeff Overton (6-under 210), won the tournament by four strokes over Illinois. Minnesota, the defending Big Ten champion and the nation's 11th-ranked team, placed third, seven strokes behind the Hoosiers.

    The Big Ten Championships, which are being hosted by Michigan, begin with 36 holes on Friday, 18 on Saturday and 18 on Sunday.
