Women's Golf Freshman Nicole Scola Breaks Two Program Records At Dartmouth Invitational

Dartmouth Invitational Second Round Results

Quinnipiac women's golf freshman Nicole Scola (Westerly. R.I.) shattered the program's single-round record with a 70 (-2) on the second day of the Dartmouth Invitational at the Hanover Golf Course. In the process, Scola finished with a 146, good for a share of fourth place, and all-time best score in Quinnipiac history for a 36-hole tournament.

"This was a great day, with a few records broken," head coach John O'Connor said. "Nicole Scola had a great day with few opportunities that she didn't capitalize on. Jenn Whaley played extremely well, with a few miscues, but all-in-all, it was two great rounds from Jenn and Nicole. We had personal-best performances from three golfers this weekend and total tournament lows as well. I couldn't ask for a better effort from the entire team."

Scola's second-round score passes former Bobcat Krissy Unger's 73 at the 2012 Northeast Conference Championship. In addition, her 146 over the two-day tournament is the lowest score in program history for a 36-hole tournament, passing her own 154 that she shot at last week's Tignanelli Towson Invitational.

Bobcat captain Jenn Whaley (Farmington, Conn.) shot a 76 on Sunday to go along with her 74 on Saturday, Sept. 13, giving her a 150 for the two-day event. Whaley, who finished in 11th place, produced the second-best two-day total in program history while also shooting a personal-best round. Taylor Lambrou (Baldwin, N.Y.) shaved 10 strokes off Saturday's 95 to finish with an 85 for the second round of the tournament. 

Bobcats' senior captain Jenn Forlenza (Wayne, N.J.) continued to showcase her new form, shooting her third-straight sub-90 round. Forlenza, who entered the season with a career-best of 89, shot an 89 on Sunday to pair with her 81 on Saturday. Her 170 for the tournament was a career-best score for a 36-hole tournament. 

Quinnipiac returns to action when it competes in the Yale Women's Invitational at historic Yale Golf Course in New Haven, Conn. on Sept. 20-21, 2013.
