TUCSON, Ariz. ?C University of Arizona menˇ?s golfer Roberto Galletti claimed individual medalist honors Friday at the Del Walker Intercollegiate in Long Beach, Calif.

Galletti, a freshman from Clayton, Calif., carded a final-round 67 (-4) to cruise to his first collegiate?victory by four strokes in the 72-man field. His nine-under 204 tournament total was the second-lowest total in tournament history.
