REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - The University of Pennsylvania women's golf team brought some hardware home in its final fall event of the season, as senior Amanda Chin gained medalist honors at this weekend's Delaware Invitational. As a team, the Quakers took second out of 10 teams at the 54-hole event.
Chin shot 80-75-72--227 over the weekend, and tied Delaware's Amanda Terzian at the top of the 54-playerleaderboard through regulation. Chin then beat Terzian on the first playoff hole to gain the championship.
"I am so proud of Amanda and how she came back after shooting 80 in the first round," said head coach Mark Anderson. "Her play in the final round was awesome. She had five birdies, including one on the last hole of the day that got her into the playoff. She actually birdied the 18th hole in all three rounds. She is one of the most consistent players I have coaches at Penn, and she is always putting up a good round when we need it."
Penn shot 313-311-303--927 as a team, its final round on Sunday being the best among the 10 teams by a full nine shots. Georgetown took the team title by five strokes, shooting 922 over three rounds, while host Delaware was third (941). This weekend's tournament took place on the par-72 Rehoboth Beach Country Club.
Franchesca de la Torre was Penn's second player this weekend; she shot 74-87-74--235 and took 10th overall. Marissa Kay (77-78-82--237) tied for 11th, while Erin Lo (82-78-78--238) tied for 13th. Sophia Chen, who won the individual title here a year ago, shot 84-80-79--243 and tied for 21st overall. Freshman Allison Wong (86-87-81--254) played the tournament as an individual and tied for 40th overall.
