Ludovica Farina tied for 67th (77-86-80).

“I’m happy with how today went and we closed the season with a great third round,” head coach Diana Cantu said. “Overall this was a good season for our program. We jumped a lot in the national rankings and showed a lot of progress. I am proud of our seniors who represented us well and are leaving Maryland better than they found it. We wish them nothing but the best.

“We look forward to welcoming our three freshmen next season and pick up where we left off and keep moving forward.”
