Bucknell Women’s Golf traveled to Warren, Ohio over the weekend to compete in the Youngstown State Invitational. 

On Sunday, April 7th, Katherine Vice ’27 earned a team-best 77, while senior twin sisters Kayla Yi ’24 and Kelsey Yi ’24 posted 78’s. Overall on the first day, Bucknell totaled a 313 team score and were seeded in third place of six at the halfway point. 

After tallying 42 on the front nine, Vice made back-to-back birdies at holes 11 and 12, followed by six straight pars to shoot 1-under 35 on the back nine. Kayla Yi also had a great start, earning a birdie at hole 9 to shoot an even-par 36 on the front side. 

For the Bison, Tara Thomas ’25 also counted an 80 after bouncing back from a tough start to par 13 of her final 16 holes.

Two Bison finished in the top ten individually. Vice was the low Bison for the week, finishing in fifth place, while Yi placed ninth. 

Overall, Bucknell posted a 614 total for 36 holes, finishing in third behind Akron (602) and YSU (613), and way ahead of La Salle (659), Saint Francis (661), and Mercyhurst (673).
