|Name||Yr.||Avg. Score||Vs. Par||Low Round||Best Finish|
The freshman tandem of Jenn Whaley (Farmington, Conn.) and Krissy Unger (New York, N.Y.), combined with veteran Kayla Ketcheson (St. Andrews, Manitoba) have combined to post the four best 18-hole rounds (Dartmouth Invitational, Rd.2, 328; Dartmouth, Rd. 1, 329; Tignanelli Towson, Rd. 2, 338; Tignanelli Towson, Rd. 1, 342) and two best tournament finishes in program history (Dartmouth, 657; Tignanelli Towson, 680).
Where There's A Wha(ley)...
Freshman Jenn Whaley (Farmington, Conn.) re-wrote the Quinnipiac record books in the first two tournaments of her career. On the first day of the Tignanelli Towson Invitational, Whaley broke the Quinnipiac freshman record with a round of 81 (+9). The record did not last long as she shot a 78 (+6) on the first day of the Dartmouth Invitational, while also carding the first Eagle in program history. On the final day of the Dartmouth Invitational, she shot a 76 (+4) for the lowest round in program history, while also finishing the tournament with the best tournament score (154,+10) and the first Top-10 finish in program history.
Quite The Ketch
Entering the season, Kayla Ketcheson (St. Andrews, Manitoba) had done her own revisions to the Quinnipiac Women's Golf record book. After a difficult first round at the Tignanelli Towson Invitational in which she fired off the highest school of her Bobcat career (94, +22), Ketcheson responded with an 83 on the second day. At the Dartmouth Invitational, she opened play with the best round in Quinnipiac history (78, +6), finishing roughly 10 minutes before Jenn Whaley came through with the identical score.
Nice Tune-up Round
Sophomore Jessica Rotell (Cheshire, Conn.), in preparation for this weekend's tournament and the team's qualifying round, sunk a hole-in-one at The Farms Country Club.
