Bulldogs Lead Pack With Best Round of Day Two
The Yale women's golf team had the best second round of anyone at the Brown Invitational Monday, firing a combined 313 en route to a fourth-place finish overall in the 36-hole tournament. Captain Lily Boettcher also turned in a stellar performance as an individual, riding a second-round 78 to a 15th-place finish. Among the biggest reasons for the push up the leaderboard, however, was sophomore Seo Hee Moon, who turned in the low round of the day - a 72 - to finish fourth overall.
Moon finished seven strokes behind Princeton's Kelly Shon, who finished the tournament at even par competing as an individual. St. John's won the tournament, finishing five strokes clear of second-place finisher Brown (+58). Penn (+61) edged out Yale by just five for third.
Besides having three players in the top 15 individual finishers, Yale saw success across the board Tuesday, as senior Callie Kemmer and junior Joy Kim both bested their Monday totals to finish tied for 26th (+29) and 30th (+30), respectively. Junior Alex Lipa tied for 37th to round out the Bulldogs' team scores, and freshman Shreya Ghei, also competing indvidually, grabbed 33rd.
The Bulldogs now have a long break before jumping back into action at the Ivy League Championships April 27-29. That tournament will be held at Galloway Golf Club in Atlantic City, N.J.
