Yale Heads to Hoya Invitational
Looks to Build on Success
NEW HAVEN, Conn.—Yale women's golf will resume its spring season this Monday as it participates in the Mar. 31-Apr. 1 Ninth Annual Hoya Invitational. The event will take place at The Members Club at Four Streams in Beallsville, Md., the home course for Georgetown University's women's golf team.
The 16-team field will be comprised of teams from host Georgetown, as well as Fairleigh, Dickinson, Hofstra, Illinois State, Lehigh, Marshall, Michigan, Navy, Nova Southeastern, Penn, Sacred Heart, Seton Hall, St. John's, Wagner, Yale and Youngstown State.
The par-72, 6,127-yard course was designed by PGA Tour veteran Nick Price and course architect Steve Smyers. The golfers will tackle the challenging course beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Monday morning, and will play another 18 holes starting at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday.
The Bulldogs are coming off a successful start to their spring season, as they competed in and won the Mar. 16-18 Middleburg Bank Intercollegiate. Freshmen Elisabeth Bernabe and Sandy Wongwaiwate spearheaded the Bulldog effort, tying for fourth place with a two-day total of 152. Senior Seo Hee Moon and junior Marika Liu came in right behind with scores of 156 and 157, respectively, good for sixth and seventh place in the tournament.
The Bulldogs will look to continue their successful season. Last year at this event, Yale finished in second place. While a repeat of that performance might be welcomed, Yale will look to one-up that result this time around and take home the winner's trophy.
