PRINCETON, N.J. -- Penn's Olivia Chang and Dartmouth's Sarah Knapp shared medalist honors at the ECAC Women's Golf Championship to highlight recent successes by Ivy League women's golf teams.
Chang carded rounds of 76 and 75 while Knapp recorded scores of 78 and 73 to tie atop the leaderboard of the 54-player field at Twisted Dune Golf Club. Knapp had finished second in the tournament in 2011. Penn finished fourth in the team standings, while Dartmouth placed sixth.
Closing out its fall slate, Dartmouth also finished fourth in the 21-team field at the Rutgers Invitational. Knapp led the way with an eighth-place finish in that event, carding rounds of 77 and 75 to finish six shots off the pace.
Four Ivies teed it up at Penn State's Blue Course for the Nittany Lion Invitational. Harvard placed second in the 17-team field, bolstered by low-round in the final loop. The Crimson carded a team score of 284 in the third round to finish at 886. Princeton's Kelly Shon (72-72-71---215) finished second in the individual standings to lead the Tigers to a fifth-place finish.
Columbia was eighth and Yale ninth, buoyed by final round scores of 293 and 297, respectively.
Brown had its trip down south cut short on October 8 and 9. The Bears were 14th out of 20 teams after the opening round at the Lady Pirate Invitational in Greenville, N.C. However, the second day of action was washed out. Maggie Min finished 12th after her opening round 73.
With the exception of Dartmouth, the other six schools have one more tournament to play in the next two weekends to close out the fall schedule.
