The official lineup for the Cal team will be junior Joanne Lee, senior Pia Halbig, junior Danielle Holmqvist, junior Emily Childs, and freshman Nicola Roessler. Sophomores Joi Pentin and Jackie Williams as well as senior Andrea Waters will all be playing as individuals.

The Bears tied for ninth place in a field featuring the top teams in the country. Joanne Lee was the top finisher for the Bears, finishing fifth at one-under. Lee started that tournament shooting a school-record 65 (-6) in the opening round.
