En route to the runner-up team finish at the Rio Verde Collegiate, Schmucker won her second collegiate title with a career-best 215 total. After opening with a four-over-par 75, she rallied back in the second round, firing a two-under 69 with the help of two birdies and an eagle in her third-career sub-par round.  In the second round, Schmucker set her second-best single round tournament total in her career.  It was the third time in her career she has scored under par.  Counting her medalist honor, Schmucker has finished as the top Wolverine in each of the seven tournaments this season.  Her medalist honor gives Michigan at least one individual tournament victory over the last six seasons.
