Abbie Meyer, Karlee Koehler and Leah Shanks made their 18-hole debuts.

Meyer led the Bolts with a 119. She finished 14th overall and was one stroke off an all-conference honor. The top 10 golfers in the tournament earn all-conference status.

Allison Colyn shot a 120 for Baxter and the other two counting scores came from Koehler (130) and Kinley Beathards (career-best 139).
