The woman’s golf team finished in sixth this past weekend at the Badger Invitational in Madison, Wis.

The Bison opened with 321 in the difficult conditions of the first round, but battled back over the next two rounds to jump from ninth to sixth. On the second day, with 40-degree temperatures and a steady rain, the Bison rallied with scores of 314 in the morning round and the 313 in the afternoon. The team’s round of 313 was the second-best round of the day by any team.

Lauren Bernard ’14 was the medalist for the Bison, tying for seventh, shooting 78-75-77, and Kasha Scott ’14 following Bernard with a score of 235 and an 18th-place finish.

“The true character of this team was shown in the way we battled and fought our way back,” Bernard said.

“The weather was some of the worst we have ever played in. However, I was really proud of how the team kept it together and put up a good round despite the weather. It truly was a character buildingexperience,” Scott said.

As for the rest of the squad, Bridget Wilcox ’14 added a third-round 78 and Minjoo Lee ’11 had a second-round 79 to help round out the Bison’s strong second-day scoring.

This weekend, the Bison will look to continue this positive momentum heading into the Nittany Lion Invitational this weekend in State College, Pa.
