Women's Golf Still Fourth at Ivies

Ivy League Championships scoreboard

NORTHFIELD, N.J. - The Penn women's golf team shaved 14 strokes off their team score from Friday to Saturday, but they are still stuck in the middle of the seven-team Ivy League Championships race after two days.

The Quakers shot 311 Saturday, and have carded 636 heading into Sunday's final round. That puts them well behind Harvard (601), Yale (609) and Princeton (610), but ahead of Columbia (640), Brown (653) and Dartmouth (692).

Penn got a big boost from freshman Tiffany Cheung, who recovered from a first-round 79 to post a 71 Saturday, the low round among the 35 golfers in the event. As a result, she moved eight spots up the leaderboard, from a tie for 11th to a tie for third. Her 150 is three strokes behind Princeton's Susannah Aboff, one shot behind Princeton's Marlowe Boukis, and tied with Harvard's Claire Sheldon.

Junior Lisette Vitter shot a 78 Saturday, and is tied for 15th overall with a two-round 159. Classmate Meredith Kotowski shot an 84 and fell to a tie for 18th (161), while Catherine Elliott improved by 10 strokes from Friday, from an 88 to a 78; she is 26th with a two-round 166. Freshman Elizabeth Pettie shot 85 and is 31st with a two-round 178.
