BARRINGTON, R.I. – The Dartmouth women’s golf team capped the two-day Brown Bear Invitational with a final round aggregate score of 324 on Monday to finish 10th at the fourth annual event.
The 2013 Brown Bear Invitational was hosted by Brown, contested at the par-72, 6,068 yard Rhode Island Country Club and featured a 14-team field. The famed Donald Ross designed course on the Narragansett Bay was the recent host of the USGA Women's Amateur Championship.
Yale won the event firing a two-round team total of 604, which was good enough for a 17 stroke victory over second place Seton Hall. Harvard finished in third with Columbia and St. John’s rounding out the top five.
Jennifer Neville of St. John’s posted a three-over-par 147 (75-72) for the 36-hole event to earn low individual medalist honors.
The Big Green shaved two strokes off their opening round 326 in the final round to leap frog the host Bears and jump into sole possession of 10th place. The two-round total of 650 (326-324) was just four strokes back off ninth place Siena.
The low scorer for the Dartmouth was Sarah Knapp, who carded a two-day total of 156 (79-77) to earn a share of 14th place.
Coming in one shot off Knapp’s pace was Jane Lee. Lee’s tournament total of 157 (77-80) was good enough to tie for 20th.
Savannah Grice, Julie Campbell and Emily Hyman rounded out the field for the Big Green. Grice entered the clubhouse tied for 40th, Campbell tied for 57th, and Hyman heads back to Hanover tied for 66th.
After a week off, Dartmouth returns to the links April 26-28 competing in the 2013 Ivy League Championship in Bedminster, N.J.
