Katie Murphy ’23 placed ninth overall on Saturday as the Panthers finished fourth in the NESCAC Championship.

Women’s golf completed the second round of the 2021 NESCAC Women’s Golf Championship on May 1 at Ledges Golf Club in South Hadley, Mass. The Panthers scored 347 in the second round, landing them in fourth overall with a combined score of 684. Williams finished first with 628, followed by host team Amherst, with 649, and then Hamilton with 654.

Although this was the second time the Panthers played at Ledges this season, some players had difficulty improving their scores.

“The course made us think more about course management,” said Lizzie Kenter ’23, who characterized the course as being short and slightly awkward.

With a second round score of 82, Katie Murphy ’23 tied for ninth overall on the day. Following her was Kayla Li ’23 who carded an 84, good for a tie for 11th overall. Kenter finished 16th overall with an 86 in her second round.

This week, the women’s golf team completes their season with a tournament at Ralph Myhre Golf Course on Saturday, May 8.
