IUPUI claimed the team title, as well as top honors as Marion DeBove finished the tournament at 2-over.

Haleigh Riley posted a 14-over, 86, during the second round to jump into a tie with Morgan Rood for top Tiger finisher. Rood shot an 89 over the final 18 holes to finish even with Riley at 33-over, 177. Rood paced her day with a birdie on the par-5, 2nd.
