PRINCETON, N.J. — After completing 36 holes at the Princeton Invitational hosted by the Springdale Golf Club, the Dartmouth women’s golf team is currently seated in fourth place among the 12 teams. The Big Green started the day strong, matching Columbia University with the low score in the first round with a 292 (+4). A 13-over 301 over the second 18 dropped them back three spots, but just seven strokes off the pace.
Junior Isabelle Kane leads the Big Green, tying for 11th by carding a combined four-over 148 during the two rounds on the par-72 course. Sophomores Catharine Roddy and Julia Calbi remained steady throughout the day as they respectively shot identical scores in the two rounds, Roddy with a pair of 75s to finish tied for 14th at six-over par while Calbi tallied a 78 each round (+12).
Tied for 14th with Roddy is senior Jamie Susanin, who shot even par to start the day before settling in with a six-over 150. Rounding out the team is freshman Maddie Nelson who started off strong shooting a 72 (E) in the first round, but finished the day in a tie for 24th with a nine-over 153.
Also competing for Dartmouth independently this weekend is junior Jessica Kittelberger, who completed her two rounds with a 10-over 154, tying for 31st with three other players.
Leading the overall tournament is Yale with a 591 (+15), two strokes ahead of Georgetown and Columbia. The Bulldogs’ Jennifer Peng is tied for the top spot at two-under par as she rallied during the second tour around the course for a three-under 69, the second-lowest score of the round. This allowed her to match Harvard’s Michelle Xie, who started off the day strong by carding a four-under 68 to place her atop the leaderboard.
The competition concludes tomorrow morning with an 8:30 a.m. tee time.
