Ketcheson, Unger and Whaley Lead Bobcats At Dartmouth Invitational
HANOVER, N.H. – On Sunday, Sept. 16, Quinnipiac freshman Jenn Whaley (Avon, Conn.) broke two more program records, shooting a 76 (+4) on the second day of the Dartmouth Invitational at Hanover Country Club for the lowest score in Quinnipiac history. Whaley's all-time best round, combined with the previous day's total, produced a 154 (+10) and gave her the best 36-hole score in program history. Whaley also posted the first Top-10 individual finish in program history.
"I was very happy with our effort this weekend," head coach John O'Connor said. "With seven birdies, and an eagle on the first day; and five birdies on the second day, the team showed a lot of promise."
As a team, Quinnipiac's scores of 329 on the first day and 328 on the second are the two best rounds in program history while its combined 657 is also a program best. The Bobcats finished 10th out of the 12 competing teams.
Teammate Kayla Ketcheson (St. Andrews, Manitoba) finished Saturday with the best 18-hole round in program history (78) before Whaley finished up a short time later, carding the same score. Ketcheson finished a stroke off on her all-time best tournament score, finishing at 165 (78-87).
Freshman Krissy Unger (New York, N.Y.) bounced back from an 81 on the first day of the tournament with a 78 on the second day for a two-day total of 159 (+15). It was the first time Quinnipiac had two golfers with sub-160 rounds and three golfers finished at 165 or lower.
Sophomore Angelica Muscatelli (North Providence, R.I.) finished with a 176 (89-87) while freshman Tayor Lambrou (Baldwin, N.Y.) finished at 181 (91-90).
Quinnipiac returns to action on Sept. 28-29 when it travels to Egg Harbor Township, N.J. to compete in the 2012 ECAC Championship at Twisted Dune Golf Course.
