Women's Golf Sits in Fifth After Opening Day of Navy Spring Invite
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy women's golf team sits in a tie for fifth place out of 12 teams after the opening day of the Navy Spring Invitational at the par 72, 6,085-yard Naval Academy Golf Club. Navy shot an opening-round score of 331 (+43). The tournament will conclude with 18 more holes on Sunday.
Harvard is in first place after the first round with a 310 (+22) and is followed by second-place Lehigh (316). Youngstown State (328) and Long Island (328) are tied for third place, while Navy (331) and Dartmouth (331) are tied for fifth place.
"The course played tough with fast greens so the scores were a little high today," said Navy head coach Nadia Ste-Marie. "But we are only three shots from being in third place. I'm optimistic about tomorrow. It's our home course and we know how to play it. Hopefully tomorrow we can improve our scores and move up the standings."
Harvard's Anna Zhou leads the 66-player field with a first-round score of 2-over par 74.
Navy also has three players competing as individuals at the Navy Spring Invitational. Junior Mary Kate Nelson and freshman Micah Vincent are tied with Moon for 29th place with 85s and senior Marci Browning is tied with Schroeder for 47th place with a 90.
Play will resume Sunday at 8:30 AM with a shotgun start.
