ANNAPOLIS, Md. — After a blustery opening round on Saturday, the weather cleared up and the sunny skies reflected the spirit of the Dartmouth women’s golf team as the Big Green produced the lowest score of the day with a 310 (+22), shaving 21 strokes off their initial score to place third at the Navy Spring Invitational with an overall 65-over 641.

Dartmouth matched the team champion Harvard, which continued its strong play by carding another 310 to shoot 620 (+44) for the tournament. Lehigh filled the gap between the Crimson and the Big Green, finishing the 12-team tournament a mere two strokes ahead of Dartmouth.

Junior Jessica Kittelberger rose 12 places in the standings from the first round to the second, tying for fourth after shooting a three-over 75 today for the Big Green to tie for fourth with the host school’s Christine Walker at 13-over par. While Kittelberger improved by seven strokes with the warmer, calmer weather, junior Tara Simmons was even better as she carded the lowest score of the day with a 74 (+2), dropping 17 strokes to shoot a 154 (+21), good enough for a tie for 23rd place.

Joining Kittelberger in the top 10 on the leaderboard was senior Jamie Susanin, whose play remained consistent over the two days with a seven-over 79 in each round to tie for sixth at 14-over par. Freshman Maddie Nelson and junior Isabelle Kane also competed this weekend, with the rookie finishing one stroke ahead at 25-over par (169).

Harvard was led by their co-medalist winners Anna Zhou and Michelle Xie who wrapped up the two rounds with an eight-over 152. Youngstown’s Reva Morris took home third just a single stroke behind the Crimson duo.
