Yorobe's two-day total of 164 left the senior in a tie for 30th. Junior Christina De Boer (Onalaska, Wis.) had rounds of 81 and 83 to tie with Yorobe for team high honors.
Stephanie Fifield (Oconto Falls, Wis.), who shot an eight-over par 80 on Tuesday, and sophomore Molly Fassbinder (Hudson, Wis.), who posted two rounds of 83, tied for 40th place. Sophomore Grace Abitz was five shots back of them in a tie for 57th.
Freshman Renee Christensen (Greenleaf, Wis.), one of the top Phoenix golfers early this season, did not make the trip due to illness.
