April 2, 2007

Washington, D.C. - Cindy Shin shot 151 to propel the Yale women's golf team to a second place finish at the Georgetown Invitational on Monday. As a team, the Bulldogs shot 617. Ivy Rival Princeton won the event with 604.

The senior captain tied with two other golfers for second place and finished only one shot behind Princeton's Susannah Aboff, who claimed the individual title.

Shin became the third golfer in Yale's last three tournaments to finish in second place by only one stroke. On Sunday, men's golfer Colby Moore shot a two-round 143 at the Lacrosse Homes Collegiate Invitational to finish just one stroke behind St. John's Keegan Bradley. Last weekend, men's captain Mark Matza shot 142 at the George Washington Invitational, taking second place behind Seton Hall's Kyle Morris (141).

Ellie Brophy and Lindsay Hong both shot 155 to tie for 10th place.

Natasha Spackey (159, T20) and Taylor Lee (160, T25) rounded out Yale's top five.

The Bulldogs return to action on April 7 at the Columbia Invitational.
