After facing a difficult first and second round on Monday, the team improved immensely in the last 18 holes. They finished the final round with a team of 307, an 18-point improvement from round two. The team finished in front of Montana State and Eastern Washington.

"We had a much better round today. It was exciting to end on a strong note," said head coach Emily Milberger. "Tara Green had a strong performance. It was exciting for her to have a good final round and a good showing her at Palouse."
