NEW HAVEN, Conn.The Yale A-Team ends day two of the Yale Intercollegiate in third place, trailing Columbia by four points and Boston College by three points. Junior Jennifer Peng (-5) played remarkably today and was a major contributor Yale's two position improvement from yesterday. The Yale B-team currently sits in 19th.

Peng gave one of the best performances of her collegiate career on the field today, scoring a 32 on the front nine and a 34 on the back nine for a round two score of 66. She demonstrated her skills on her home course, firing birdies on holes one, two, four, six, eight, thirteen, and fourteen. Peng currently sits tied for first individually, only rivaled by Cincinnati's Tara Liebet.

Also helping Yale to move up in the rankings, senior Elisabeth Bernabe (+2) ended round two with a score of 73, improving three points from round one. Captain Sandy Wongwaiwate (+5) and freshman Felicia Chang (+5)  played consistently, both scoring 76 during round two. Rounding out the A-Team, junior Julie Luo (+7) scored a 78.

Yale's B-Team, composed of senior Sara Garmezy, junior Jayshree Sarathy, sophomores Sabrina Long and Sydney Babiak and freshman Beryl Wang have all played consistently throughout the tournament. They ended round one with a score of 315 and round two with a score of 318. They currently sit in 19th place and have a chance to move up in the rankings tomorrow if they continue with their consistency.

The Bulldogs will look to continue their performance in the final 18 holes on Sunday. They are well positioned to improve on their result last year, when they finished in eighth, and have a chance to move up into the top two spots.
