With the tournament just a week away, the Bulldogs have been hard at work over the winter season to position themselves strongly for the spring campaign. Led by senior captain Sandy Wongwaiwate, who captained the team to solid third-place finishes at the Princeton Invitational and Yale Women's Intercollegiate, the team will look to carry over its momentum from fall competition. Wongwaiwate will be supported by seniors Elizabeth Bernabe, Sara Garmezy and Julia Yao.
This season, junior Jennifer Peng looks to continue her incredible play from the fall. Peng started the fall season strong and rose in the rankings from week to week. She placed fourth at the Nittany Lion Invitational, tied for second at the Princeton Invitational, and ended the fall season tied for first at the Yale Women's Intercollegiate. Fellow junior Jayshree Sarathy also hopes to continue her consistent play and will be an asset to the team as they look to place next Thursday. Sophomores Sabrina Long, Julie Luo and Sydney Babiak also enter the spring season with several powerful fall performances under their belt, and their consistency on the course will be essential in helping the Bulldogs place high during the spring season.
The tournament marks the first of two competitions for the Bulldogs on the West Coast over the spring break. Yale will also compete Mar. 20-22 at SDSU's March Mayhem at The Farms, held in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.
Back on the East Coast, the Bulldogs will travel to The Oaks Club in Sarasota, Fla., to compete in the Apr. 8-9 Hoya Invitational, before heading to Gaithersburg, Md., for the Apr. 10-11 Hoya Invitational, held at Four Streams Golf Course. They finally return home for the Yale Women's Spring Scrimmage at Yale on April 16.
The Yale Women's Spring Scrimmage will offer the team its final opportunity to tune-up before the Apr. 21-23 Ivy League Championship, held this year at Orange Tree Golf Club in Orlando, Fla.
