Championship Central | Results | Interview with Harvard head coach Kevin Rhoads

GALLOWAY, N.J. -- As the strength of the winds went down, so did the scores on day two of the 2012 Ivy League Women's Golf Championship. After dealing with winds up to 35 miles per hour during the first round, the golfers played through much more manageable nine miles per hour winds on the second day of the event, and it showed on the scoreboard.

Harvard overtook Penn for the top spot, carding a 308 during round two and finishing the day with an overall score of 640 (332-308). The Quakers are close behind at 643 (326-317) with Yale is right on their heels with a 644 (328-316). Columbia is also in the mix, shooting the second-best score on day two (311) to move into fourth-place with an overall tally of 649.

Brown (345-327--672), Princeton (355-335--690) and Dartmouth (345-348--693) round out the scoring after the second round.

On the individual side, Penn junior Isabel Han carded a 72, the best score of either round for this tournament, to move into a tie for second-place along with Columbia sophomore Michelle Piyapattra (80-73), as each player stands at 153 after two rounds.

Harvard sophomore Bonnie Hu remains in first-place by three strokes after carding a 73 during the second round. Hu finished with six birdies on the day, while Han recorded three and Piyapattra carded two.

Yale sophomore Sun Gyoung Park (78-77--155) stands in fourth-place, just ahead of her teammate Seo Hee Moon (85-75--160) and Brown freshman Stephanie Hsieh (82-75--157).

The team and individual titles will come down to the final round, which will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday.
