As a team, the Chanticleers posted rounds of 298-290-302 en route to a 26-over 890 score and their best team finish of the fall season. College of Charleston won the 13-team event with a 13-over 877 (290-287-300) final score. Wofford (312-297-311) and Charleston Southern (306-304-310) tied for third with matching 920 sums.

Marissa Hinchman finished in the top-10 for the second consecutive tournament, tying for ninth with a 9-over 225 (75-74-76). Hinchman improved three spots in the individual rankings over the final round of play as she used 14 pars to card a 4-over 76.

Frida Castillo notched Coastal’s top round of the day, carding a 1-over 73 and tying for 13th overall with scores of 75-74-76=225. Castillo’s final round featured four birdies and 10 pars against a trio of bogeys and a double bogey. Her top-15 finish was her second in as many tournaments.
