The women’s golf team scored a school-record 296 on Sunday to take first place in the Bucknell Invitational. The record-setting final round capped a remarkable weekend for the Bison, who tied the previous record with a 303 in the first round Saturday and nearly again with a 304 in the second round later that day. The team’s total score of 903 beat the previous program record by 40 strokes.

The Bison earned their second tournament win in program history and first since 2006, beating defending champion William and Mary by 19 strokes.

Katie Jurenovich ’11 tied the individual program record with an even-par 70 in the final round. Jurenovich won a four-hole playoff to become tournament champion after her three-round score of 221 tied Jeanne Waters of Rutgers.

Minjoo Lee ’12, who held the individual lead by one stroke at the end of the first day, finished third overall, one stroke behind Jurenovich and Waters.

Lauren Bernard ’14 and Kasha Scott ’14, who finished tied for 15th with 233, and Bridget Wilcox ’14, who finished tied for 31st with 241, also contributed to the victory.

The Bison will next travel to Wisconsin next weekend to compete in the Badger Invitational.
