The Petrels posted the second-best final round score as a team, coming in at one-over par for the day. The score helped them move up from seventh to their finishing position of third. The only team that shot better on Tuesday was St. John Fisher, who posted a score of one-under par for the day.

This concludes the Petrels' fall schedule. Golf competition will resume during the spring.
