Final Results (PDF)

GALLOWAY, N.J. - The Penn women's golf team could not catch Harvard on Sunday at the Ivy League Championships, and finished second behind the Crimson.

Harvard entered the day up three strokes on the Quakers, and shot a 312 to Penn's 315 to win the tournament by six strokes, 952 to 958. Yale shot a 318 on Sunday and finished third as a team, with 962, while Columbia ended up fourth at 972.

It was a gallant effort by Penn, which played the tournament without two veteran players from their regular lineup -- senior Tiffany Cheung and junior Elizabeth Kresock. Both players, who were out due to injury, were at the Seaview Resort to cheer on their teammates.

Itwas the same story in the individual race, as Isabel Han could not catch Harvard's Bonnie Hu. Hu entered Sunday's final round up by two strokes on Han, and her final-round 75 bested Han's 77. As a result, Hu won medalist honors by scoring 225 for the weekend, while Han finished second at 230. That gave the junior first-team All-Ivy recognition for the second time in her career.

Freshman Amanda Chin shot a 74 on Sunday, the second-best round in the field, and finished the tournament sixth in 235, earning second-team All-Ivy recognition. Olivia Chang carded an 83 on Sunday and finished tied for 12th at 246, while Michelle Lee shot an 81 and ended up tied for 15th at 247. Libby Hooton shot an 83 on Sunday, as well, and finished the weekend at 256 which put her in 27th place.
