Finishing sixth overall and just four shots off the lead, Eric Mitchell led Princeton at the Ivy League Championships, which wrapped Sunday at Metedeconk National Golf Club in Jackson, N.J.

Mitchell carded a 2-under 70 in Saturday's second round, a number that remained a tournament low as it was matched only by Yale's Will Bernstein in Sunday's final round. 

In other Sunday highlights, Mitchell's classmates Michael Davis and Marc Hedrick each birdied par-3s Sunday, Mitchell's coming on the 11th hole and Hedrick's on the 15th. Those were the fourth and fifth hole-in-twos on the weekend for Princeton, as Hedrick picked up a birdie on the 11th Friday, Davis birdied the par-3 seventh Friday and Mitchell birdied the 15th Saturday during his 2-under 70 round.

Harvard won the team title by four shots over Dartmouth, netting the Crimson its second Ivy League title and first since 1975, the year the Ivy began hosting its own championship tournament.

Cornell's Luke Graboyes, at +5, edged out Dartmouth's Ian Kelsey by a single shot to win the individual title, netting Cornell its first individual champ since Jim Bird in 1986.

All-Ivy honors will be awarded Tuesday.
