Rutgers got help from Harriet Allsebrook, who fired three consecutive rounds below par to cruise to a five-shot victory to earn medalist honors at 9-under par 207. Maeve Rossi also finished inside the top-10 for Rutgers, shooting 1-over 217 to place tied for eighth.
Gopher sophomore Kate Lille posted a 5-over par 77 during the final round Tuesday to slip six spots to a disheartening tie for 16th at 221, while teammate and fellow sophomore Joanne Free carded a 75 Tuesday to place inside the top-20 at 8-over 224.
