Nine teams competed in the event.

Cassidy Rawls tied for 11th place after posting 81-78=159, Tori Gatling tied for 13th place with a 78-82=160, Olivia Robinson shot 80-81=161 for the Cru to tie for 18th place, Emily Ming recorded an 83-80=163 to tie for 21st place and Casey Washmon carded an 83-83=166 to tie for 26th place.
