Women's Golf at East Carolina This Week

PHILADELPHIA - After a two-week break from tournament action, the Penn women's golf team jumps into the fray Monday and Tuesday at the East Carolina University Lady Pirate Intercollegiate. This event will run with 36 holes on Monday and 18 holes on Tuesday at the par-71, 6,040-yard Greenville (N.C.) Country Club. The teams will play with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. on both days.

Penn opened the season with a third-place finish at Princeton, then went second a week later at Yale's fall tournament. In the process, the Quakers have been setting records for individual low rounds, team low rounds and team lows at a tournament. Still, head coach Mark Anderson sees room for improvement, and that has been the focus over the last two weeks.

"We have worked hard on our weaknesses over the past two weeks," said Anderson. "For some of the women it has been putting, and a few of them we have made some minor swing changes to improve their ball striking.There are a few top 100 teams at the ECU event, and we are looking forward to the challenge and seeing how we stack up. The women are playing well, and I expect another strong finish."

Penn has played six women at the first two tournaments, and you can expect to see all six of them in the field at ECU. They include junior Tiffany Cheung, sophomores Isabel Han and Elizabeth Kresock (who will play as an individual), and freshmen Olivia Chang, Michelle Lee and Rui Li.
