Elizabeth Duswalt, Senior Writer

Leading the Bison women’s golf team to take fifth at the Patriot League Championship on April 18-19, Jen Lee ’16 and Emily Larson ’17 both earned Second Team All-Patriot League honors. Both placed in the top-10. Their scores contributed to a team total of 333 in the final round on April 19.

For the 54-hole tournament, the Bison scored a total of 990. Boston University won its first ever Patriot League women’s golf championship with a total of 929.

Lee came in eighth place with a score of 241 (80-78-83), and Larson tied for 10th with a total of 243 (83-80-80). Also for the Bison in the final round, Nicole Mischler ’17 shot 84, Callie Nelson ’17 shot 86, Lindsay Dodovich ’18 shot 89, and Emily Timmons ’15 shot 91.

This was the third Patriot League Women’s Golf Championship. Each year, there has been a different winner, with Lehigh claiming the title in 2013 and the Orange and Blue winning it last year in 2014.

“After our win last year, it was pretty disappointing to finish fifth,” Lee said. “I think every single member of our team really applied themselves in the weeks leading up to the tournament and unfortunately we just couldn’t get it done. For me personally, it has been a very frustrating season and I haven’t been satisfied with my play, which definitely took a toll on my mental game. Being able to get past those hurdles and post some decent numbers at PL and finish top ten I think is a strong end to the year and will give me some positive momentum moving into next year.”
