Moon Dominates the Field on Day One of C&F Bank Intercollegiate

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - On a weekend on which the moon appears the biggest and brightest it has in New Haven in 13 years, Yale women's golf freshman Seo Hee Moon shined as brightly as ever at the C&F Bank Intercollegiate at Ford's Colony C.C., dominating the course -- and the rest of the field -- firing a 6-under 66, 8 strokes ahead of the next-best finisher. That performance led the Bulldogs to the top of the leaderboard, finishing at just eight-over on the day overall, 14 shots ahead of second-place St. John's.

Yale captain Alyssa Roland also had a huge day for the Blue-and-White, posting a 2-over 74, good for a four-way tie for second place. Just three strokes off Roland's pace was her classmate, Harriet Owers-Bradley, whose 5-over day put her in a tie for ninth. Sophomore Joy Kim posted a +7, good for 16th, and freshman Sun Park rounded out Yale's competing five with a +9 day.

More golf will follow Sunday, the final day of competition at the 22-team tournament.
