Women’s Golf’s season ends, Richter stands out

Hugh Straine, Staff Writer

Women’s Golf capped off their season this past weekend at the Patriot League Championships at Independence Golf Club in Midlothian, Va.

The headline of the event for Bucknell was Paige Richter ’26. She had a stellar tournament and earned herself Bison of the Week honors. In her championship debut, Richter finished at T7 individually and earned All-Patriot League Second Team honors.

My overall mindset going into conference championships was to enjoy my last tournament of the season with my team and do my best to be present during each shot of my round,” Richter said. “I tried to focus more on the process and not as much on the result, which gave me some more momentum going into each day.” 

Richter was consistent all weekend, as her 220 total score through the first 54 holes, scoring a 73 and 75 respectively, was the lowest in Bucknell Women’s Golf history.

She also carded ten birdies throughout the championship, which was tied for second in the field, along with four birdies in the final round en route to an even par 72. 

The Bison finished fifth for the championship, breaking a program record for total score on a par-72 course with 907. After her first round 73, Richter was locked in for the rest of the weekend.

“My thought process after the first two days was to try and win every shot on the course, and focus on not making any big mistakes that could take me out of the top 10,” Richter said. “The golf course we played on was a really good course for my game, and I tried to use that to my advantage to gain some momentum throughout the three days.”

The Orange & Blue ended the spring season with a lone victory at the Bucknell Invitational and two team finishes inside the top three.
