The meet was scored in a dual-scoring format, with each school receiving a dual-meet score against each of the other opponents.
"Overall, I'm impressed with how well our student-athletes are improving and working together," head coach Amy Horst said. "After a great team retreat and preseason period, they know what they need to do and continue to take the right steps to improve as a team, as well as, individually."
Junior Sarah Askine and freshman Christina Daniels both finished among the top 20, taking 19th and 20th, respectively. Senior Erica Canas finished just outside the top 20, coming in only seconds behind Askine and Daniels and finishing 24th overall.
