Chen's three round scores of 72-67-75 (-6) were good enough to share individual honors with Bryana Nguyen of Maryland as well. Ha ended up finishing T29 in the individual portion (79-81-75) but her final round 75 is what helped seal the deal for New Jersey.

This was the 10th playing of the biennial competition, which involves three-person teams in a 3-count-2 stroke-play format for 54 holes. Fleming's second round 79, in conjunction with Chen's impressive 67, gave the ladies a share of the lead heading into the final day.
