Bulldogs Take Third At Ivies

April 22, 2007

Trenton, N.J. - The Yale women's golf team shot 321 on the final day of the Ivy League Championship to finish in third place. Columbia won the event with a three-round total of 933 and became the first school to win the Ivy title besides Yale or Princeton.

Cindy Shin continued her streak of top-five finishes at the championship by taking fourth place with a score of 232. As a result, she was named All-Ivy for the fourth time. Shin won the individual title in 2005 and finished as last year's runner-up.

All four of Yale's other golfers finished in the top twenty-one. Natasha Spackey had one of her best performances of the year to claim 10th place with a score of 241.

Lindsay Hong shot 242 to tie for 11th and Ellie Brophy shot 243 to tie for 13th. Erica Im finished in 21st with 252.

"Although we're disappointed with our third place finish, we are definitely excited about our second round score, which was the lowest of the tournament," said Brophy. "If anything, we are now more motivated than ever to work hard this summer and start the fall season with a bang."

The Bulldogs are waiting to hear whether they will receive an NCAA regional tournament bid, in which case they will be back in action on May 11.
