The Penn women’s golf team finished third in the Brown Invitational on Monday.
In the two-round, nine-team tournament that began Sunday, the Quakers scored 320 in the first round. In the second, they improved by three strokes to finish three and eight strokes behind Brown and St. John’s, respectively.
Both the Bears and Red Storm had built comfortable leads in the first round — St. John’s went into the second day with just a 304, 10 lower than second-place Brown. This cushion proved sufficient for both squads, as the Bears finished second with a 634 and the Red Storm won the tournament shooting a 629. Penn finished with 637 overall.
The Quakers had two golfers finish in the top 10. Junior Isabel Han took third place with 150, and freshman Amanda Chin placed sixth with 154. The two-round tournament par was 144.
In the Hoya Invitational last week, Han and senior Tiffany Cheung both carded 235, tying for seventh place.
Following the Brown Invitational, the team will take a two-and-a-half-week hiatus before the final tournament of the spring on April 27-29, the Ivy League Championships.
