Bernabe Tied for Third
STATE COLLEGE, Pa.—With momentum from two consecutive tournament victories, the Yale women's golf team finished the first day of the Sept. 27-29 Nittany Lion Invitational in outright first place.
Yale leads the tournament, which is hosted by Penn State on its Blue Course in State College, Pa. The highly competitive 13-team field includes defending champion Penn State and Ivy League rival Columbia.
On Friday, the Bulldogs shot a round of 289 to lead second-place Penn State by four strokes. Leading the way for Yale is freshman Elisabeth Bernabe, who fired 71 to sit in a tie for third place. Bernabe entered the tournament having won two tournament medals in her first two collegiate tournaments.
Golfers will return to the course starting at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday and the tournament will conclude with a shotgun start at 9:00 a.m. Sunday.
