Negron finished the final two rounds with a five under par total of 139 but, after having been disqualified in the first round because of an incorrect drop on an embedded ball, counted only two of her three rounds toward her individual score and finished in 96th place.

The Crimson Tide finished with three players in the top six and four players in the top 25 of the individual standings. Alabama’s Brooke Pancake and Megan McChrystal of LSU finished in a tie for first place in the individual standings with identical scores of 205. Pancake defeated McChrystal on the second playoff hole to win the individual championship.

Florida State was led by junior Maria Salinas (Lima, Peru) who finished in a tied for 42nd place with a three round total of 221. She carded a two over par score of 74 in the final round. Her best round of the tournament was an even par score of 72 in the opening round of the tournament.

Junior Macarena Silva (Santiago, Chile) finished in a tied for 47th place with a 54 hole total of 222. She carded the best round of the tournament for the Seminoles with a 71 in the first round.
