The Aggies finished with a score of 900, to win their first Big West title by 19 strokes over runnerup Long Beach State.
Amy Simanton and Chelsea Stelzmiller tied for honors with 3-round totals of 224, 8 over par, but Stelzmiller won a head-to-head playoff with a par on the third hole. Teammates Demi Runas (226) and Alice Kim (227) placed fourth and fifth, respectively, with Long Beach State's Simone Hoey (225) ruining the sweep with a third-place showing thanks to a final round of one-over-par 73.
