At the Yale Invitational last weekend, women’s golf delivered a solid performance mixed with flashes of amazing play. The Bears earned an 8th place finish in the 14-team field, shooting a three-round score of 935 (316, 304, 315) at the 5,959-yard Yale Golf Course. The host school came away with the victory on the par-72 course, as the Bulldogs shot 886 (296, 293, 297), 13-strokes ahead of second place University of Pennsylvania.

“I’m happy with our overall finish,” said Head Coach Danielle Griffiths. “The field was pretty tough, so the middle of the pack was still a very good finish for us.”

Bruno saw an impressive display from Megan Tuohy ’12, who set a school record for one-day low score carding a 71 in the second round. Griffiths called Tuohy’s performance a “break-through round.” Her 54-hole score of 227 (80, 71, 76) earned her 15th place individually.

At the same time, Carly Arison ’12 was a “very consistent performer,” remarked Griffiths. She shot three rounds in the 70’s to finish 23rd individually with a score of 231 (77, 75, 79).

Susan Restrepo ’11 carded a 236 (79, 77, 80), Sarah Guarascio ’11 finished at 244 (83, 81, 80) and Heather Arison ’12 shot a 250 (80, 87, 83).

The Bears return to action October 10-11 for the Northern Illinois Invitational held at Whisper Creek Golf Course in Huntley, Ill.

“We’ll get to play a different tournament field than we’re used to seeing, some more northern teams,” Griffith said. “It’ll be a good challenge for us. It also helps our strength of schedule to play some different teams, so we’re looking forward to going to Chicago.”
