"It was great to see Kathleen play so well on familiar ground for her," Stender said. 

Senior Samantha Stancato and redshirt freshman Gabrielle Gibson turned in scorecards of 81 (+9), as they sit tied for 56th place. Freshman Klara Castillo, playing as an individual, finished with a round of 79 (+7), as she is tied for 38th place.
