The Bulldogs shot a final round 32-over, 320 to finish at 79-over (315-308-320--943).Louisa Lies, a senior from Weinheim, Germany, recorded her fifth top 20 finish of the season by tying for 18th at 11-over. During the final round, Lies shot a final round 4-over, 76 to move up five positions from the previous day.
