The individual champion was Campbellsville’s Cassidy Scantland after firing a 228 (73, 75, 80). Taylor Gillis from Cumberlands ended up shooting the lowest round of the championship with a 72 on day one before ultimately finishing in 18th place with a 247 (72, 83, 92).

Cumberlands earned the automatic bid to the NAIA National Championship next month, while Scantland earned an automatic bid as an individual with her MSC win.
