James McVicker produced his best round of the week to snatch victory at the Irish Intervarsity Championship in Rosapenna.

Representing Ulster University, McVicker carded a closing round of 70 to finish one shot clear of Eoin Murphy (Dundalk IT) on four over par. Murphy's sensational final round of 67 left him just short of overall victory. Murphy tied for second with Ireland international Ronan Mullarney (Maynooth University).

Niamh Ward made it a double success for Ulster University as she finished five shots clear in the women's event.
