Senior Allie Girard fired an even-par and team record score of 73 in round one and her two-day score of 153 earned her medalist honors at the event. Lake Forest's round of 333 on Friday was also the best in team history, as was the team's two-day total of 672. The Foresters wil host Mount Mary University Friday afternoon at 2:00 and will travel to Rockford, Illinois, for the Aldeen Preview on Sunday at 11:00 a.m.
