As a team, the Lady Bucs are 10 strokes behind first place Coastal Carolina.

Along with Barton, sophomore Laura Diaz (Aquadilla, P.R.) finished tied for 12th at 12-over-par, while senior Kristen Fletcher (Cookeville, Tenn.) ended the day tied for 28th at 15-over. Meanwhile, junior Robin Downes (Johnson City, Tenn.) and sophomore Kailey Brooks (Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada) both finished tied for 38th.
