George Fox started the day in eighth of the 12 teams after two opening rounds of 311 and 304 as a team on day one. They would end the day after dropping back two spots on the leaderboard to place 10th of 12, but the Bruins were still able to finish ahead of two NCAA DI opponents in a field that was made exclusively NCAA DI teams but for George Fox.

Nicolle Nitta wrapped up the tournament with a total card of 236 (+20) in a tie for 40th overall after shooting a 76 on the final day. Nitta's 76 was the low round from the Bruins on the day.

Alex McMenamin wrapped up the Collegiate Invite with a total card of 238 (+22) in a tie for 46th after a last round of 84. Kaitlyn Tonai, the Bruins' last scoring golfer, ended in a tie for 60th after a round of 83 on the last day put her tourney tally at 244 (+28).

Tianna Brown and Avery Kageyama finished off their individual runs at the Collegiate Invite with cards of 244 (+28) and 250 (+34), respectively.
