The finish continues her perfect start to the season, finishing in sole possession of first twice and tying for first once with fellow Sun Devil Alexandra Forsterling.

ASU as a team finished in first with a 14-stroke lead over second-place Northwestern.

Junior Alessandra Fanali ended the tournament second among Sun Devils and tied for seventh place overall, finishing 14 strokes over par. Freshman Ashley Menne tied for 12th by finishing 16 strokes over par.
