The Maroon & Gold totaled a 673 (339-334) at the Sand Creek Country Club (par 72, 6,074 yards) to move to eighth in the team standings.  Defending Valley Champion Missouri State (324-318=642) holds a one-shot lead over second-place Bradley (320-323=643).  The Bears' Abby Cavaini carded consecutive rounds of 76 to top the individual leaderboard with a 152 (76-76).
