Seattle U finished in 11th place as a team, with a total score of 68 over par. Junior Krystal Hu continued her streak of leading the team, posting rounds of 75, 77 and 78 and finishing 14 over par. She was closely followed by sophomore Nicole Foster (80-75-77), who ended the tournament just two strokes behind Hu, and sophomore Kimberlee Tottori (77-75-81), who finished with 17-over. Sophomore Keisha Lugito (79-79-80) had a total score of 21 over par, while redshirt junior Linette Chua posted rounds of 80, 81 and 81 for a final of 26-over.
Three Redhawks competed as individuals in the tournament. Sophomore Vendela From scored rounds of 79, 82 and 83 for a total of 28 over par. Senior Yen Ting Wong finished a stroke behind, with rounds of 85, 79 and 81, while sophomore Anne Transier (88-86-86) rounded things out at 44-over.
