Thirteenth-ranked Kent State (+12) held off No. 24 Purdue (+13) for the team title, and No. 35 Texas Tech (+14) took third. The field featured five teams ranked in the top-25 and six individuals in the top-100 in the country.

Hvass started her round with three straight pars and capped the day with five pars. Bowman parred six of her final eight holes, including the last three.
Coe played her first six holes 1-under with a birdie on the par-3, 138-yard 17th and was 1-over through eight holes. Macioce parred six of her last eight holes, and Shin made par on her final four holes of the tournament.
Quotable from coach Emily Kuhfeld
“We are disappointed in how this event went, but we will learn and grow from it. Navigating the correct speed and playing enough break on these greens was our downfall this week, but overall, we hit the ball beautifully and made some good improvements in understanding ourselves and our games. We will take this experience and have a few great weeks of practice and preparation for the Sun Belt Championship!”
The Eagles travel to the Sun Belt Conference Championship April 17-19, at The Fighting Joe course at The Shoals in Muscle Shoals, Ala.
