Coming into the final round of the Lady Pirate Invitational Tuesday, the Yale women's golf team was in 14th place, 27 shots off the lead. 18 holes and a handful of low scores later, the Bulldogs finished the tournament in seventh - just five strokes out of the top five in one of the most competitive fields on their schedule. As usual, it was sophomore Seo Hee Moon leading the way for Yale, finishing tied for seventh at +1 overall. Moon's second-round 69 (-3) was the low score of the tournament for the Bulldogs.
Sophomore Sun Gyoung Park fired a 73 on the final 18, placing her in a tie for 28th in the individual standings. Just behind her was junior Alex Lipa, who carded a final-day 75 to send her to a tie for 38th (+12 overall).
The ACC's Maryland took home the team title, while Old Dominion's Samantha Morrell won the individual championship at -4 for the tournament. The seventh-place finish marks the second-straight top ten finish in a competitive field for the Bulldogs, who round out their fall schedule next weekend at the Harvard Invitational, before breaking until March and the start of the spring season.
