10 Strokes Behind Harvard
NEW HAVEN, Conn. — At the end of the second day's play at the Sept. 21-13 Yale Intercollegiate, the Yale women's team sits in fourth place out of 17 teams, one better than yesterday with a day of play still to come.
It was another tough day Saturday out on The Course at Yale for the Bulldogs, who are competing at home in New Haven, Conn., for the first time this fall. Today the team put up 299, four strokes better than yesterday's 303, to move into fourth place with 602 overall — tournament leader Nova Southeastern sits on 573.
The only Ivy League team positioned above Yale is Harvard, which finished Saturday at 592 to close in third place.
Still, the Yale team has one more round to further climb the leaderboard, and its players are certainly in good form to do so. Junior Seo Hee Moon leads the way, closing at +4 over the first two rounds to sit in a tie for 12th place. Close behind her is sophomore Marika Liu, who shot +2 today to finish in a tie for 16th.
Together, the team will look to improve upon last year's fourth-place finish at the Yale Intercollegiate, which featured Moon clinching the individual medal in a playoff.
Other Ancient Eight teams below the Bulldogs on the leaderboard include Brown, Dartmouth, Penn and Princeton.
