The Bulldogs had two players among the three tied atop the individual leaderboard, as January Romero and Jessica Shapiro both shot 75 along with Minnesota's Terra Petsinger. Ellie Brophy tied for fourth with a 76.

The Snowbird Intercollegiate was a 16-team event hosted by NIU at the par-72, 5,940-yard Pebblecreek Golf and Country Club. The event was originally slated to last 36 holes, but heavy rains in the Tampa, FL, area on Thursday (March 17) forced the cancellation of the opening round.
