ORU shot 580 (292-288, +4) on the opening day and holds a 16-shot lead over the rest of the field entering the final round, Tuesday.

- All seven ORU golfers are in the top 30 individually.

- Playing as an individual, Rachel Dupree finished the day two over and in a tie for fourth place. With Annie Lacombe finishing the day tied for 28, ORU has two of the top three individuals of the tournament in addition to the team lead.

- ORU matched its best round on a par 72 course with a 292 in the opening round, and topped it by shooting 288 in the second round. Only once this year have the Golden Eagles shot better and it was a school record tying 282 on the par 71 course at the Texas State Invitational to start the spring.
