“We really played well Monday afternoon, although we didn’t finish the round off this morning,” APSU coach Sara Robson said. “I thought we played pretty well today, although we just didn’t score well as well as we would have liked.”

Senior Jessica Cathey was APSU’s top finisher, shooting a trio of 78s to end in a 25th-place tie. After shooting an opening-round 83, freshman Taylor Goodley settled down to shoot 75 and 77 over the final two rounds to end at 235, one shot behind Cathey and in a 31st-place tie.

Junior Morgan Kauffman shot 238 (81-78-79) followed by Ashton Goodley at 241 (80-82-79) and Morgan Gardner at 253 (86-85-82).
