The Patriots posted rounds of 301 and 305 for a total of 606 (+30).

Freshman Hayley Dambold notched her third consecutive Top 10 showing shooting rounds of 78 and 75 for a total of 153 (+9) to tie for eighth, while sophomore Kynze Mann improved two strokes from an opening round 81 for a 79 to tie for 22nd with a score of 160 (+16).

Freshman Sierra Campbell recovered from an opening round 87 to match Moore for team-best score in the final round with 74 to tie teammate Kellie Martin (83-78) for 27th with a 161 (+17).

Freshman Madison Smith carded a two-round total of 171 (+27) to tie for 63rd, while Caitlan Inman marked a total of 178 (+34) to finish 86th -- both playing as individual medalists.
