Women’s Golf places eighth in Navy Spring Invitational

Bucknell Women’s Golf participated in the Navy Spring Invitational this past weekend and faced tough conditions including cool, windy weather. 

On the first day, the Bison placed towards the back of the pack, heading into Sunday with a score of 353 in ninth place. Penn had a score of 310 to lead the event, with an eight-shot lead over Navy, followed by Quinnipiac and Columbia tied at third with 322. Behind the Bison were La Salle and Wagner. 

The average score for the day was 85.7, and the Bison had several players near that range. Nicole Yun ’27 etched an 85, Cristina Canales ’24 and Kelsey Yi ’24 both shot 89s and Paige Richter ’26 tallied a 90. 

The Orange and Blue posted a much better score on Sunday, bringing it down to 319, placing them in eighth place to finish the tournament. Penn won the tournament, scoring a 612 total.

The Bison were able to lower their score with some impressive showings, including a score of 77 by Richter. She was only 2-over par through 17 holes, but ended on a triple-bogey on the ninth. Following Richter, Yi posted a 78, and Yun and Tara Thomas ’25 shot 82s.

Women’s Golf finishes out their season this weekend when they compete in the Patriot League Championships at home.
