Sophomore Chelsea Gatterdam bested her round one 89 with a second round 78 for a two-day total of 167, good for a 24th place finish individually. She earned the Top-25 result by playing the second day back nine at even par to card her best collegiate round and finish as the top D-III player in the field.
Jordan Krahn, also a sophomore, turned in two steady performances of 87-85 for a total of 172 and a 31st place result. Sophomore Tori Van Wyen went 85-91-176 to come home in 40th place while freshman Erin McPhee totaled 196 to finish in 66th position.
