Jennifer Yu won the individual title after a 2-under par 69 in the final round. She is the first LBSU golfer to win scince Kay Hoey in 2007. Yu started the day with two bogies, but finished strong with two birdies on the final holes. She won by three strokes.

“We had a really good talk about two weeks ago about raising the bar,” Cerulle said of he and Yu. “It inspired her, and watching her last two weeks of preparation, you could see it coming.”
