SAN JOSE DEL CABO, Mexico — Four-under par rounds of 67 from juniors Rowin Caron and Hank Lebioda helped Florida State move from four back in third place into an eight-shot victory at the Querencia Cabo Collegiate as the Seminoles shot seven-under on the final day.

Trailing South Florida by four entering Tuesday's final round, Caron of the Netherlands and Lebioda of Winter Springs, Fla. matched their rounds from day one when they both carded 67s, as well. The final-day push helped the Seminoles to their third win of the season, and first of the spring.

Florida State had previously won in the fall at the Tavistock Collegiate and the FGCU Classic.

Caron finished in second place, one ahead of Baylor senior Kyle Jones in third while Lebioda tied for fourth along with Will Zalatoris of Wake Forest and Rigel Fernandes of South Florida.

South Florida led by one entering the final day but shot five-over on Tuesday and dropped back into a third place finish. Vanderbilt went even lower than the winning Seminoles on Tuesday, shooting 11- under as a team thanks to a 67 from Hunter Stewart and 68s from Theo Humphrey and Carson Jacobs. The Commodores' final day solidified them a second place finish by a stroke over the USF Bulls.

Individually, Washington senior Cheng- Tsung Pan (left) of Chinese Taipei earned his second title of the spring, edging Caron of FSU by a stroke.

Pan shot rounds of 68-67-69 to finish at nine- under 204, leading his Huskies to a fourth place finish. Corey Pereira and Jonathan Sanders both had top-10 finishes for Washington.

Pan previously captured the individual title at the Amer Ari Invitational when his team took second place to the red-hot Arizona State Sun Devils, who have now won three times this spring.
