Blackerby wound up with a three-round score of 235 (+19) after recording an 80 on the final day. For Emanuelsson, it was her first career top-20 placement. The native of Sweden tied for 19th overall with a 24-over-par 240.

Fellow freshman Catherine Matranga tied for 30th place with a 30-over score of 246. Stacey Bieber was three two strokes behind Matranga after an 81, the Frogs' second best round on Tuesday.
