Washington University in St. Louis is first in the field of six with a 302 while fourth-ranked Rhodes College is second with a 313.

Katelyn Gilmore led 19th-ranked Huntingdon with a career-best 1-over-par 73 in Sunday's opening round. The sophomore holds sole possession of second place and is one stroke off the lead.
