Women’s Golf Surges into Second Place Finish to Conclude 2019 Season

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. – The Amherst College women's golf team finished off the 2019 season with a second place finish at the Williams Spring Invitational, which concluded Sunday at the Taconic Golf Club.

Amherst shot 320 on the second day of competition, combining for a 635, two strokes ahead of third place Middlebury. They were runners-up to only host Williams College, who broke 300 (296) on Day 2 for the second weekend in a row and broke 600 by a stroke after doing the same at the Jack Leaman Invitational last weekend.

Lily Worden '21 finished the tournament alone in seventh place after shooting 79 on Day 2, following up a 74 opening round score.

Katie Rosenberg '19 and Maggie Schoeller '19 both concluded their Amherst College women's golf careers this weekend. Schoeller landed in 14th place overall with an 80 today, while Rosenberg followed her 82 with an 84 today to finish in 17th place.

Mina Lee '22 completed her first season with the team by placing 15th after matching Schoeller's day with an 80 of her own.

One shot back today was Isabelle Ouyang '21, who finished one stroke ahead of Lee in the final results, carding a 161 for a 14th place finish.

All of the competing Mammoths landed in the top-twenty of the event, including India Gaume '21, whose 78 on Sunday put her in a tie for tenth overall. Gaume was competing as the lone individual for the Mammoths this weekend.

The Mammoths were in third place after the first day of competition, but seized the opportunity when the Williams College "B" team fell back to fourth after a second day 326. Middlebury improved by 11 strokes to move into third place for the event.
