MAMARONECK, N.Y. - After 36 holes on Friday at the Roar-EE Invitational, Yale is in third place behind Brigham Young and Harvard. Unfriendly greens lead to a widespread field, however, and Yale, which shot a score of 663, is 25 shots behind Brigham Young (638) and 12 shots behind Harvard (651). Six shots behind Yale is league rival Princeton.
Yale put four players in the top 20, with senior Ellen Brophy leading the way. She is currently in ninth place with a two-round score of 164. Sophomore Taylor Lee is tied for 14th with a score of 167. Freshman Harriet Owers-Bradley and junior Natasha Spackey are both tied for 19th with scores of 169. Senior Lindsay Hong, who finished runner-up in the tournament last year, struggled in the first round, shooting a score of 98. She currently sits tied for 44th, after recovering in the second round with a score of 80. Yale's individual competitor, freshman Cassie Boles, turned in a score of 170 to leave her tied for 23rd.
Players struggled across the board on Friday with no scores posted in the red. The closest anyone came was Sarah Harvey of Harvard with a four-over round of 75. Brigham Young holds the top two individual scores with Natalie Jimenez at 153 and Juli Erekson at 158.
The tournament will conclude Saturday.
