Alex Harrell (Auburn) and Chessey Thomas (Tennessee) matched Britt’s afternoon 72 to break out of their tie for third with Sauzon to share the title at plus three (147).

Emily McLennan (Queensland, Australia) also finished in the top 20. She tied for 19th at 156 completing her day with a one-over par 73.
