Thuesen started her day with an eagle on the par-5, 455-yard 15th and birdied two of her next three holes to move to 4-under. She added three straight birdies on 6, 7 and 8 and finished the day with three consecutive pars.

Georgia Southern combined to play the 15th hole 6-under as Satterfield posted an eagle, while Noonan and Heideman carded birdies there. Satterfield played her final six holes 3-under, and Noonan capped her tournament with consecutive birdies.
