UVa shot 2-over 290 during Tuesday's final round, its best 18-hole score of the tournament, to finish at 16-over 880. Second-ranked USC (868) edged No. 1 ranked Alabama (872) for the team title. Tulane and Duke tied for third at 879.

Virginia was led by the 18th-place finish of senior Joy Kim. She shot 1-under 71 Tuesday during a round that saw her post six birdies and five bogeys. She finished the 54-hole event at 3-over 219. It marked the first time since playing at the NCAA East Regional in 2008 that Kim has led the team in scoring.
