Wake Forest and Duke were tied for fifth at 297 (+9), followed by LSU in seventh at 298 (+10) and Arkansas at 299 (+11).

Freshman Tiffany Joh led the Bruins on Tuesday with a one-under par score of 71. Joh played the outward nine in one-over par 37, got as low as two-under on the day before finishing with a 71. She was tied for fourth, three strokes off the lead.

Junior Hannah Jun, in her second competition after a serious neck injury, carded a 76 (+4) and was tied for 46th. Senior Susie Mathews and freshman Jane Park each posted a 77 (+5) and were tied for 70th. Mathews, one-under par through 14 holes, played the final four holes in six-over par.
