Piscataway, N.J. - Senior captain Ellie Brophy won the Rutgers Invitational on Saturday, as the Yale women's golf team finished in second place out of 18 teams in Piscataway, N.J. Brophy became the second consecutive Yale women's golfer to win a tournament this fall, following up on Lindsay Hong's first place finish at the Yale Intercollegiate two weeks ago.
Brophy finished with a six-over 150 (76-74) over the two-round tournament. She led after the first round and managed to maintain her composure and remain atop the leaderboard, edging out St. John's Brittany Lambertson by one stroke. Lambertson had tied Lindsay Hong for first place at the Yale Intercollegiate. It was Brophy's first career victory at Yale.
Freshman Harriet Owers-Bradley also turned in a nice score for the Bulldogs. The Nottingham, England native shot 160 (84-76) and finished tied for ninth place. Lindsay Hong was only one stroke behind with 161 (83-78) and tied for 15th.
Taylor Lee tied for 19th with 162 (86-76) and took 27th with 165 (86-79). Alyssa Roland also competed for the Bulldogs and tied for 37th with 168 (89-79).
Bethune-Cookman College won the event with a team total of 624. The Bulldogs shot 633. No other Ivy teams competed in the tournament.
The Bulldogs are back in action next weekend in Bethlahem, PA at the Lehigh Invitational.
