NEW HAVEN, Conn. — The final round of the Yale Women’s Intercollegiate was canceled on Sunday due to rain. Dartmouth settled on a fifth-place finish after setting a school record for 36 holes with a 290-299—589 (+21), just eight strokes off the pace set by team champion Columbia.
Boston College ended up just one stroke behind the Lions in second, while Yale (585, +17) and Harvard (588, +20) narrowly edged out the Big Green for third and fourth, respectively.
Freshman Maddie Nelson led Dartmouth in 10th place among individuals with a 70-74—144 (+2) on the 6,016-yard, par-71 course at Yale. Two of her teammates weren’t far behind in sophomore Julia Calbi (70-75—145, +3) in a tie for 14th and junior Isabelle Kane (74-74—148, +6) in a tie for 23rd. Sophomore Hana Bradshaw and senior Jamie Susanin each contributed a five-over 76 to the team score, Bradshaw on Friday and Susanin on Saturday.
Yale’s Jennifer Peng — who shot the low round of the tournament with a 66 (-5) yesterday — and Cincinnati’s Tara Liebert shared medalist honors with a six-under 136, while four other golfers also finished the two rounds under par.
The Big Green will finish their fall slate in two weeks when they travel to Rehoboth Beach Country Club for the Delaware Invitational on Oct. 22-23.
