Hezri carded a 1-under, 71 through the first 18 holes and then posted a brilliant round of 7-under, 65. Ferris State's Danielle Staskowski finished three strokes back in second while Warrior teammate Rebeca Vestman placed third (-4, 140).
Wayne State qualified first for Saturday's GLIAC semifinals, when the format will switch to match play. The Warriors finished three strokes ahead of second-place Ferris State. Grand Valley State and Saginaw Valley State also advanced to the semifinals.
