Day Two Results

Bernabe in Second Place

SPRINGFIELD, N.J.—With one round remaining at the Apr. 25-27 Ivy League Championship, the Yale women's golf team sits in a tie for second place with Princeton, 18 strokes behind first-place Harvard. Leading the way for the Bulldogs is freshman Elisabeth Bernabe, who carded 75 during her second round on the Upper Course of Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, N.J.

The Bulldogs shot 300 to end the day at 612 (+36), in a tie with the Tigers who shot 307 to fall from outright second place. The Crimson, meanwhile, shot the day's low round of 297 to retain the lead, with 594 (+18) overall.

Bernabe's 75 on Saturday put her in second with 146 overall, four strokes behind tournament leader Anne Cheng from Harvard, who ended the day with 142. Right behind Bernabe is junior Marika Liu, who shot 70—the day's equal low round—to close the day in a tie for third, with 150.

Freshman Sandy Wongwaiwate and junior Shreya Ghei ended Saturday with 156 and 160 to sit in a tie for 16th place and 21st place, respectively. Senior Seo Hee Moon finished the day in 30th with 169.

Yale will look to make a move during the final round of play on Sunday, as it seeks to cap off a season during which it has finished in no lower than third place at a tournament. The Bulldogs last won the Ivy League Championship in 2011 and has finished third the last two seasons—the Crimson won both championships. 

Golfers will tee off for their final round beginning at 8 a.m. Sunday.
