Washington University saw their group take second, third, fourth and eighth place, while Kelli Fisher got in on the scoring for the Tigers. The sophomore recorded her best tournament finish as a Tiger, finishing T4 after carding rounds of 79-74= 153 (+9).

Brianna Yee claimed seventh place for the Tigers after finishing the opening round with a 71, one-shot off the overall lead. Yee fired a second round 83 to finish +10 for the weekend.
