After day one at the Princeton Invitational, Jen Lee ’16 and Katie Childers ’19 led the Bison, posting 81s despite bad weather. Lindsay Dodovich ’18 closed the invitational on the second day of play with an 81, and helped the Orange and Blue move up to a tie for 11th. Princeton hosted the tournament, which included 15 teams, from Oct. 3-4.

Along with Lee and Childers, Graysen Bright ’19, Dodovich, and Emily Larson ’17 also contributed to the first day of play with scores of 84, 85, and 86, respectively. Due to the morning rain, play was shortened to just 18 holes. After the first day, the Orange and Blue landed in 12th place with a team score of 331.

“The expected winds and rain from the hurricane will affect everyone in the field, but I think as a team we know how to deal with bad weather because we played in it last week at ECU,” Larson said. “We have a solid group of girls who are all capable of shooting low scores, so I am excited to see what the weekend will bring!”

Day two of play proved to be tough, as the Bison fought through tough conditions on the course. The Bison posted 334 for a team total on Oct. 4, ending the invitational with a 665 composite in a three-way tie for 11th with Seton Hall and Lehigh. Alongside Dodovich, Lee and Bright contributed to the total, each posting 84. Childers trailed with an 85 and Larson shot an 86.

The Bison will return Oct. 19-20 to wrap up their fall season at the Dayton Invitational in Kettering, Ohio.
