Women's Golf Freshman Jenn Whaley Records Program's First Eagle At Dartmouth Invitational; Bobcats Turn In All-Time Best Team Round
Freshman Jenn Whaley (Avon, Conn.) followed a birdie on the 14th hole at the Hanover Country Club with the first eagle in Quinnipiac women's golf history at the Dartmouth Invitational in Hanover, N.H. While official results and scores are not available, Quinnipiac finished at a combined 329, which stands as the all-time best team round in program history.
"This is an extremely difficult course," head coach John O'Connor said. "I'm proud of my athletes - we had four athletes playing on this course for the first time and came away with the best team round in program history. [Jenn] Whaley's 14th and 15th holes were brilliant and Kayla [Ketcheson] was awesome."
Kayla Ketcheson (St. Andrews, Manitoba) finished with the all-time best round in program history when she carded a 78 (+6) at Hanover Country Club. Ketcheson entered the weekend with the four lowest single-round scores in Quinnipiac women's golf history. Ketcheson's record lasted until Whaley finished up, when she also turned in a 78 for the day.
"I'm proud of both players," head coach John O'Connor said. "Kayla and Jenn both started out slow, but had a tremendous finish on a very difficult course."
Freshman Krissy Unger (New York, N.Y.) also had a solid day, finished with an 82. Unger shot a 44 on the front nine, but responded with a 38 on the back for a strong finish.
Freshman Angelica Muscatelli (No. Providence, R.I.) shot an 89 (+16) in her first collegiate competition while classmate Taylor Lambrou (Baldwin, N.Y.) finished with a 91. Unofficially, Quinnipiac led the University of Hartford, Dartmouth's "B" team, University of Albany and Holy Cross and sat three strokes behind Northeast Conference opponent, Wagner.
Quinnipiac resumes play on Sunday, Sept. 16 with the final day of competition at Hanover Country Club.
