Liu Named Captain

Strong Performer and Leader

NEW HAVEN, Conn.—Junior Marika Liu was elected captain of Yale women's golf at the team's annual end of year banquet on Monday evening.

Liu has been an integral member of the team throughout her three years.  She has shown to be in top form against the stiffest competition. This past weekend, she shot a 228 at the Ivy League Tournament to earn Second Team All-Ivy recognition. The year before, she placed third at Ivies to earn First Team All-Ivy recognition. She had top-10 finishes this season at the Nittany Lion Invitational, the Yale Intercollegiate, and the Middleburg Bank Intercollegiate, among others.

Liu is a leader on and off the golf course. Hailing from Beverly Hills, Calif., she was ranked in the top 15 recruits out of high school by US Golfweek. She was the Valedictorian of Pendleton High School and studies History at Yale.
