Women's Golf Finishes 13th At Columbia's Roar-EE Invitational

Brianna Tansey (Nashua, N.H.) shot a 46 through nine holes on a rain-shortened second day of Columbia University's Roar-EE Invitational at Spook Rock Golf Course in Suffern, N.Y. Quinnipiac finished 13th out of the 13 teams at the event.

"To say the weather today made golfing difficult would be putting it lightly," head coach John O'Connor said. "It was the worst conditions I have seen in years of coaching golf and much to their credit, these athletes suffered through pouring rain and very, very cold weather. We were on the verge of snow and they perservered. I am very proud of them."

Tansey's two-day total of 140 (94-46) put in 61st place. Amanda Nagel (Greenwood, Minn.) shot a team-best 43 on the second day, but a first-day 104 put her at 147 for the tournament, tied with teammate Jennifer Forlenza (Wayne, N.J.), also with a 147 (93-54). Forlenza's 93 on Friday was a team-best for the first day of the tournament.

Pennsylvania and Fairleigh Dickinson tied for the win at 465 (+33) for the two-day invitational. Columbia (473, +41) was third, followed by Siena (480+48), Lehigh (483,+51), Sacred Heart (491, +59), Towson (494, +62), Wagner (499, +67), Dartmouth (501, +69), Albany (502, +70), Boston University (521, +89), Long Island (523, +91) and Quinnipiac (614, +182).

Quinnipiac returns to action when they travel to Daytona Beach, Fla. to pay in the 2011 Northeast Conference Women's Golf Championships at LPGA International Golf Course on Thursday, April 21 through Saturday, April 23.
