Otterbein (701), Capital (702), and Heidelberg (703) finished second through fourth with each score just one shot behind the other.
Senior Allison Pastor (Sagamore Hills/Nordonia) led the Purple Raiders shooting a two day score of 165 which tied for second place. Fellow senior Olivia DeMartino (Canfield/Canfield) finished tied for ninth after shooting a 174.
Another senior, Morgan Brumenschenkel (Shelby/Shelby) made a clutch birdie putt on 18 to seal the win for the Purple Raiders as she tied for 13th and shot 176. The sophomores rounded out the five for the Raiders as Morgan Stubbendieck (Akron/Hoban) and Rachel Markle (Solon/Solon) shot 185 and 187 for 27th and 28th, respectively.
Marietta's Jackie Cunningham was the medalist of the OAC Invitational after posting a 163 over the two days.
