Weather Hits Lady Pirate Intercollegiate
Second Round Washed Out
GREENVILLE, N.C. — With Monday's second round of play washed out due to weather, the Yale women's golf team finished the day in 10th place at the Oct. 8-9 Lady Pirate Intercollegiate, after completing the day's opening round at +20.
The tournament, hosted by East Carolina University at the Greenville Country Club, has drawn a very powerful field of 20 teams, and Monday's difficult weather did nothing to help players. Last year, the Bulldogs claimed seventh place — just five strokes away from the top five — at the Lady Pirate Invitational and they will certainly look to build on that performance this year.
The Yale team opened the competition Monday with several strong performances. Leading the way for the Bulldogs is sophomore Caroline Rouse, who played consistent golf despite the weather to finish at Even for the day, in a tie for fourth individually.
Not far behind Rouse is junior Sun Gyoung Park, who shot +4 in the first round to close in a tie for 24th place.
Although one scheduled round was washed out Monday, players will only play one further round Tuesday. The Bulldogs are well positioned to make a charge up the leaderboard when players tee off beginning at 8:30 a.m.
Following the Lady Pirate Invitational, the Bulldogs have just one remaining fall tournament: the Oct. 20-21 Lehigh Invitational at the Saucon Valley Country Club in Bethlehem, Pa. Then, the Yale team will break until they recommence competition next March.
