The freshman then played even for the final six holes to make the turn at four over. She then notched her first career birdie on No. 2 and also birdied six and nine while recording bogeys on one, four and five along with a double bogey on three. 

Kelsey Hayward (Seekonk, Mass./Methacton) (41st place, 82), Amanda Reach (Moscow, Pa./North Pocono) (72nd place, 90), Abbey Fry (Lebanon, Pa./Cedar Crest) (77th place, 92) and Nicole Fazio (Lower Gwynedd, Pa./Gwynedd Mercy Academy) (88th place, 105) also competed for the Mount.
