The rounds turned in on Tuesday by Johnson and Colosky were the best by CMU golfers in the three-day tournament, which was hosted by Georgia State.

CMU freshman Meghan Deardorff posted a final-round 80 to finish at 255. CMU's Holly Hines shot 88 on Tuesday. Hines did not play in Sunday's opening round and therefore did not place among the final standings.
