The women’s golf team took 13th in Penn State’s Nittany Lion Invitational. Due to extreme conditions, the first two rounds yielded high scores and the final round of the 54-hole tournament was cancelled. Kasha Scott ’14 continued her successful season, shooting a pair of 76s to finish in a tie for 20th.

“The weather was really awful for the tournament, but I just made sure that I really focused on one shot at a time, and trying to get on the green and two putt. I was really proud of myself for how I played despite the conditions,”  Scott said.

Minjoo Lee ’12 finished second individually on the team with a two-day score of 160.

The Orange and the Blue shot 315 on the first day of the tournament.  Scott and Lee led the way for the team with 76 and 78.  Bridget Wilcox ’14 shot 80 and Lauren Bernard ’14 shot 81 to round out the four scores of the Bison.

“The conditions made it really tough for the second tournament in a row but I just kept trying to grind it out and make some pars,” Wilcox said.

Overall, it was a disappointing weekend for the Orange and the Blue. The second day the team score increased to 321.  Scott was the only Bison to break 80.

But Wilcox and the team are staying optimistic.

“The scores definitely don’t reflect our playing abilities and we are going to work hard this week to gear up for our next tournament over fall break at ECU,” Wilcox said.

The team travels to Greenville, N.C. on Monday to take part in the two-day Lady Pirate Intercollegiate.
