Katie Murphy ’23 placed third overall this past weekend.

With a score of 339, women’s golf finished last place out of four teams at the Hamilton Invitation on April 19, ending 25 strokes behind first-place Williams.

Kicking off their first tournament of the season, the Panthers adjusted to several Covid-related changes. One alteration was the inclusion of Covid-19 tests before the match, which prevented the team from conducting their typical warm-up on the driving range. Likewise, golfers played in groups of five, slowing down the pace of the match. 

“After playing for five hours, most people start to cap out on their energy level, and I think we felt that this weekend,” said Lizzie Kenter ’23, who shot a 91. Kenter also expressed her confidence that the team is capable of much more as the season continues.

One bright spot for the team was Katie Murphy ’23, who landed in third place with a score of 77. Kayla Li ’23 also had an impressive performance, shooting a 79 and tying for sixth place.

The Panthers are back in action on Sunday, April 18 at the Williams Spring Invitational in Williamstown, MA.
