Fresh off a successful outing at the Hoya Invitational, Penn women’s golf competed at the Pirate Invitational, which was held at the New Course at Trump National in Bedminster, N.J.

The Quakers’ lineup featured junior Amanda Chin , senior Michelle Lee and freshmen Marissa Kay , Erin Lo and Franchesca de la Torre in the 36-hole tournament hosted by Seton Hall.

The Quakers finished in sixth place in the field of 17 teams with a total score of 646 strokes. Columbia (631) won the event by one stroke over Yale.

“It was a great tournament. We played well the first day and unfortunately did not play well on the second day,” coach Mark Anderson said. “One highlight of our event was Amanda Chin. She was tied for fifth. She shot a great 73 today.”

Led by Kay’s score of 75 — good for a second-place tie in the entire field — the Quakers finished the first round in third place behind Princeton and Columbia.

“Marissa played very well in the first round,” Anderson said.

In the second round, Chin shot a 73 to lead the Quakers to a 322 score, and her low round tied for second best in the field on Sunday.

However, competitors Seton Hall and St. John’s would shoot rounds of 311 and 305, respectively, to best the Quakers by Sunday afternoon.

Chin finished tied for fifth place individually with a 10-over-par 154, while Kay placed 14th with a 15-over-par 159.
