Going into day two, the team knew they had to shoot better than the day before if they wanted to medal. As a team, they scored 11 strokes better on day two than on day one (296). The team finished with a tie for third with Cameron University and five strokes behind Newman College for second.

Sophomore Isabell Jimenez-Perea had a repeat of day one with shooting a 73, one over par and she tied for fifth place as an individual. Freshman Beatriz Prados carded a score of 75; three over par, for a tie for seventh place individually. Sharon Lau and Jessica Pickwick both scored a 74, two over par. The girls tied for 20th and 22nd, respectively. Playing as an individual this tournament was junior Marea Durie, who scored a 73 on day two and tied for 14th place individually.
