Records were matched and broken by the Fillies en rout to the first place finish.

No one was better than Aubree Klug who bested all 28 other golfers to earn the meet medalist honor after shooting a round of 93. Just as the team did with the front nine, so too did Klug earning her best nine hole round of 45 while her back nine score of 48 came just one stroke off her season low nine hole mark.
Lydia Steier followed closely behind Klug, also using a front nine score of 45 to help her earn a grant total of 94 strokes and runner up status. Fellow teammate Sarah Rauchenberg matched the first round scores of 45 by Klug and Steier and added a back nine score of 51 for a grand total of 96 strokes on the day. That score gave Rauchenberg the fourth best score of the meet.
