SUFFERN, N.Y. - The Penn women's golf team tied Siena for the second-best round on Saturday, and that allowed the Quakers to move up one spot in the team standings and finish second overall at the 14-team Roar-ee Invitational hosted by Columbia.

The Quakers shot 306 on Saturday, a total that was beaten only by Harvard's 303. The Crimson ended up winning the event, carding 300-303--603 for the tournament. Penn was second (307-306--613), followed by Yale in third (306-313--619). Siena was fourth.

Sophomore Tiffany Cheung was Penn's low scorer on Saturday; she carded a second-round 74 to give her 151 for the tournament. That allowed her to tie several other golfers for fifth place overall. One of the other players in fifth was teammate Meredith Kotowski, who went 77-76--for the event.

Lisette Vitter tied for 21st overall (77-79--156), while Isabel Han shot 78 on Saturday to finish at 158 and tie for 25th. Catherine Elliott (77-81--158) also tied for fifth, as every Penn player finished in the upper third of the 75-player field.

Columbia's Nancy Shon (71-77--148) and Harvard's Mia Kabasakalis (72-76--148) tied for first individually, but Shon was given medalist honors by winning the tiebreaker with a 39 on the back nine.

Penn is back in action next weekend at the Ivy League Championships, which begin Friday and continue through Sunday at the renowned Baltusrol course in northern New Jersey.
