In the tournament finale, Maryville took the Eagles to extra innings. Henry led the game off with a double and was sacrificed to third base. Chastity Smith drove Henry home with MC's lone runs. Emory tied the game in the bottom of the inning with a one out double.

Henry shut down the nationally ranked Eagles for 8.1 innings. She scattered eight hits and surrendered only one earned run while striking out four.
