Since the Jackets were unable to field a complete team, there was no team score. William Penn went home with the conference title shooting a combined two-day score of a 607 (+39). Second place was claimed by Grand View with a 655, as Baker University was third with a 677.
Graceland's Hannah Austin put together a two-round score of a 169, -- 13 over par. She finished in a two-way tie for 14th. Teammate Julia Austin turned in a 194, with marks of 94 and 100.
Head Coach Kevin Brunner said, "Hannah and Julia represented Graceland very well at the Heart of America Conference golf tournament. They both played good rounds of golf and set the bar for next year's team. Hannah did an excellent job even though she was struggling with her swing. She showed great maturity in her first year of collegiate golf. Julia continued to improve, hitting the ball farther during this tournament then she did at the beginning of the year. She will be fun to watch play over the next few years."
Grand View's Kimberly Nelson won the individual title with a two-round score of a 150 (73-77), edging out William Penn's Jodi Saito who posted a 151.
William Penn University's Elise Warne received the Heart Women's Golf Player of the Year plaque after the tournament, while William Penn's Nik Rule was named Coach of the Year.
The all-conference team was made up of 15 members. William Penn had the most on the squad with seven. Gracleand did not place anyone on the all-conference team.
