Women's Golf Looks to Keep Up Hot Play

PHILADELPHIA – Coming off individual and team wins at the Hoya Invitational earlier this week, the University of Pennsylvania women’s golf team looks to continue its hot play this weekend at the inaugural Pirate Invitational.

Seton Hall is the host for this event, which will take place Saturday and Sunday on The New Course at Trump National in Bedminster, N.J. The New Course plays at par 72 and 6,143 yards. The Pirate Invitational is a 36-hole tournament that will have the teams playing 18 each day, with a 9 a.m. shotgun start both days.

Penn will join 17 other teams in the field including the host Pirates (who will have two teams) and fellow Ivy members Brown, Columbia, Dartmouth, Princeton and Yale. The other teams in the field are Bucknell, Boston University, Central Connecticut State, Hofstra, LIU-Brooklyn, Rutgers, Sacred Heart, Siena, St. John’s, and William & Mary.

Penn’s lineup is slightly different from the group that won the Hoya. Junior Amanda Chin, who took medalist honors in Maryland, remains the Quakers’ No. 1. She will be joined by senior Michelle Lee and freshmen Marissa Kay, Erin Lo and Franchesca de la Torre.

“We have a slightly different line up this week due to some injuries, but it will be a good opportunity to test the depth of our team,” said head coach Mark Anderson. “The team is confident coming off a win earlier in the week.With so many other Ivies in the field, we will get a look at them and see how we stack up.”
