Perryman earned a spot on the all-tournament team with a finish of third individually in a deep and competitive field of 17 teams and 88 individuals.
Milligan carded 305 over Monday's first round, which had the Buffaloes in second place only three strokes off the lead. After Tuesday's round of 313, they finished seven strokes off the lead.
Perryman's all-tourney honor came after she posted rounds of 74 and 75, only one stroke off the individual lead. Meryl Castle was not far behind, coming in at seventh overall with rounds of 74 and 78. Rounding out the Buffs on the leaderboard were Emma Brown (79-80/29th), Nellie Berglund (79-80/29th) and Danielle Mirovich (78-84/36th).
Milligan will break from competition through the winter season and return to action in the spring.
