Yale Takes 2nd At Lady Hoya Invitational
April 2, 2006
Leesburg, VA - Yale began the second round of the Lady Hoya Invitational only four shots behind Georgetown. After seeing their chances at winning the event dwindle as Georgetown pulled away early, the Bulldogs rallied to maintain their position to finish second overall, three strokes ahead of Princeton and 17 strokes behind Georgetown, the tournament's host and this year's champion.
January Romero (153, +9) finished tied for second place and led a Yale squad that placed four of its five golfers in the top 20. Jeehae Lee (155, +11, 6th), Lindsay Hong (160, +16, T15th) and Ellie Brophy (161, +17, T19th) were the other three. Cindy Shin finished tied for 28th place (164, +20).
Georgetown's Christy Larrimore won the individual title and was the only golfer to finish in red figures.
Jeehae Lee led all Yale golfers with six birdies over the two-round tournament and finished third overall in that category. January Romero had 23 pars, a tournament best. As a team, Yale finished best on par 5 scoring with +1.
The Bulldogs return to action next when they travel to Crystal Springs, NJ to compete in the Ivy League Championships on April 22-23.
