SMU played without senior Laura Cross, but were still able to finish on top of the 16-team tournament. It was a different line-up than the Mustangs expect to use, but it got the job done in this tournament.

Other notable finishers were junior Lacy Jones, who finished 13th overall in the tournament, senior Kristina Rothengatte finished tied for 25th, freshman Sarah Dodson finished tied for 36th and Ashley Deatherage, a senior, completed the tournament tied for 59th.
