BETHLEHEM, Pa. – The Dartmouth women’s golf opened its final tournament of the fall with an aggregate score of 332 on Sunday to sit in eighth place after the first round of the Lehigh Invitational. The Big Green are 30 shots off the pace of first-place Harvard.

The two-day, 36-hole event is being contested at the Saucon Valley Country Club and boasts a field of nine teams.

The Crimson shot a team total of 303 to hold a three-stroke lead over Seton Hall while Princeton, Boston University and Georgetown round out the top five.

Individually, BU’s Kristyna Pavlickova fired a 71 to hold a two-stoke edgeover a trio of players tied for second after the opening 18.

The low scorer on day one for Dartmouth was Jane Lee. Lee carded a 79 thanks to a team-high 12 pars to enter the clubhouse tied for 16th. 

Tara Simmons and Sarah Knapp each fired 81s to share a piece of 22nd. Simmons had two birdies on a cold and windy opening round and also lead the field in par-3 scoring at even par.

Evan Sterneck rounded out the field for the Big Green with a 91 to land in 42nd.

Lily Morrison competed individually for Dartmouth, shooting an 87 to earn a share of 37th.

The Green and White conclude the tournament tomorrow, Oct. 28, with the final 18 holes.
