Sept. 11, 2005

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Junior Cindy Shin saved her best for last, matching a single-round tournament best with an even par 72 in Sunday's final round of the Notre Dame Invitational. The stellar round pulled Shin into a tie for eighth place in the tourney's individual standings and helped the Elis finish ninth in a field of 17 that included multiple national powers.

Yale's three-round total of 954 was 25 strokes back of the host and tourney champion Irish.

Shin finished the tournament with a three-round total of 239, 23 over par. The rest of the Elis followed Shin's lead on Sunday, posting a team score of 311, their best round of the weekend at Warren Golf Course. January Romero posted a 77 in the final round, her best score of the tournament, to finish in the top 40.

Sophomore Ellen Brophy also had a strong showing, finishing 23rd.

The Bulldogs have next weekend off before returning to action at the Princeton Invitational on Sept. 23.
