Her performance also marked the sixth time in seven outings this year she has led the team in scoring.
Freshman Briana Mao was UVa's next highest finisher, also shooting 72 during the final round to place 18th at 2-over 218. That bettered her previous best tournament score this season by 12 strokes.
Elizabeth Brightwell also carded a 72 Sunday and was 23rd at 5-over 221. Her finish was the best of her career. Portland Rosen placed 33rd at 223 and Lauren Greenlief was 66th at 231.
