Ballo shot a tournament-best 66 on Sunday, going bogey free until the final hole of the tournament. Ballo, who surged from a tie for 11th to a tie for first on Sunday, played the front nine at 5 under during the final round.
Fairleigh Dickinson (24 over), Central Connecticut State (30 over), Robert Morris (32 over) and Long Island-Brooklyn (40 over) made up the top five.
