Foran, Jeffs Claim Lady Eph Invitational

October 8, 2002 

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA – Amherst College sophomore sharpshooter Emily Foran (Dallas, PA) fired a scorching round of 77 and prevailed in a three-way playoff to win the 2002 Lady Eph Fall Invitational, hosted by Williams College at the Taconic Golf Club, on Sunday. Amherst took the team title as well with a combined score of 332, five strokes better than runner-up St. Lawrence University. 

Foran, who earned Honorable Mention All-America honors after finishing fourth at last year's NCAA Championship Tournament, finished her round tied with Mt. Holyoke's Audry Longo and Wellesley College's Daren Matsuoko. The Jeffs placed six golfers in the top 20 overall. Amherst senior co-captain Katie Gravel (New Hampton, NY) finished just one shot off the pace with a 78. 

Amherst will wrap up its fall slate this Saturday at Wellesley Invitational.
