Scutt, who finished third, and Taylor Dedmen, who finished fifth, also earned OVC All-Tournament honors. Scutt, Dedmen, and Shelby Darnell also earned All-OVC honors with Scutt and fellow freshman Kaley Campbell picking up OVC All-Newcomer honors as well.
 
Wake Forest is the No. 1 seed in the Franklin regional with Alabama, Texas A&M, Duke, Oregon State, Vanderbilt, BYU, Kent State, UTSA, Augusta, and Boston University making up the rest of the 12-team field.
 
The top four teams from each regional will advance to the National Championships, May 20-25, at the Raptor Course at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. The top two individuals that are not on a team that advances to Grayhawk Golf Club will also qualify for the National Championships.
