Columbia, Harvard and Yale all played in the rain-shortened Nittany Lion Invitational on Penn State’s Blue Course in State College, Pa. on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.

The Bulldogs and Crimson finished tied for ninth, with Columbia finishing 12th in a field that included 15 teams. Harvard’s Tiffany Lim tied for 15th (76-75--151) to lead the Ivies on the individual leader board, while Columbia’s Michelle Piyapattra finished one stroke behind Lim to tie for 20th (76-76--152).
