PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania women’s golf team has its final tune-up before the Ivy League Championships this weekend, traveling to Brown to participate in a match-play event with the host Bears, Princeton and Dartmouth.
This weekend's event will take place at the Carnegie Abbey Club in Portsmouth, R.I. Carnegie Abbey plays at par-71 and covers 6,006 yards.
The Quakers will face off against the Big Green in a series of match-play duels on Saturday, while the Tigers face the Bears. Each duel will be worth one point. The first-round winners will face each other in the second round, while the losing teams battle each other for third place.
Penn’s lineup will start with freshman Rachel Dai and continue, in order, with junior Sophia Chen, sophomore Tiffany Yau, sophomore Allison Wong, freshman Janet Zhang, junior Franchesca de la Torre, and sophomore Michelle Yom.
“We are without 2 of our top 5 players this week due to injuries and sickness,” said head coach Mark Anderson. “This will give a few of our less-experienced players some tournament experience.This is the first match-play event we have played in the Ivy League, so it should be fun.This is our final event before Ivies and a good opportunity to see the three Ivies that we have not seen this spring.”
