Rutgers finished the tournament in 18th place with a team combined score of 337 Longwood University took the team title with a score of 307. Four competitors carded a two-over-par 73 to tie for top individual honors.
Sophomore Kathleen Kennedy (Annandale, NJ) led the Scarlet Knights, tying for 37th overall, with a score of 81. Senior Kathleen Freer (Vorhees, NJ) fired an 84 to tie for 69th place. Just one stroke behind was sophomore Mary Stewart (Scottsdale, AZ), who tallied an 85 to finish in a tie for 78th. Sophomore Caitlin Flynn (Fairfield, CT) finished tied for 90th with a score of 87, while sophomore Noel Picca (Irving, TX) tied for 109th place out of 118 competitors with a score of 94.
