First Round Suspended At Brown Invitational; Scola, Ribbins Lead Bobcats On First Day

Quinnipiac women's golf freshmen Nicole Scola (Westerly, R.I.) and Emily Ribbins (Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands) were within a stroke of each other - 77 and 78, respectively - following the Bobcats' first round play at the Brown Invitational at Metacomet Country Club. The first round was suspended with four teams still on the course, and will be completed on Monday morning. 

"I'm very happy with the way things went today. We played well, considering what a cold, windy day it was," head coach John O'Connor said. "Emily Ribbins was a great standout  - she finished with three birdies. Nicole Scola had our best score after she played well with a 77. Everyone did a lot of good things, I expect to move up in the standings tomorrow." 

Ribbins' 78 is a career best, improving on her 81 at the Yale Invitational on Sept. 20. Scola's 77 is her first sub-80 round of the spring after she shot an 88 and 80 at the Delaware State Invitational. 

In addition to Scola and Ribbins, Jenn Whaley (Farmington, Conn.) turend in an 87 while Taylor Lambrou (Baldwin,  N.Y.) finished with an 85 followed by Jenn Forlenza's (Wayne, N.J.) 95. 

The first round at Metacomet will be completed on Morning, followed by the second round's commencement at 11 a.m.
