Women's Golf Finishes 2nd At Delaware State University Invitational

Results

Freshman Krissy Unger (New York, N.Y.) finished second out of 22 individual golfers to lead the Quinnipiac women's golf team to a second-place finish at the Delaware State University Invitational.

"We were in the hunt for the whole thing up until the last two holes," head coach John O'Connor said. "Overall it turned to be a pretty good weekend - Hannah Russell and Taylor Lambrou both turned in personal-best rounds."

The Bobcats posted a tournament-best 331 for the second round of the tournament. While the Bobcats won the day, they finished second to Hofstra by three strokes, 658-661. Unger bounced back from a first-day 83 to card a 78 - tops among all golfers on Sunday - on her way to a gross of 161.

Classmate Jenn Whaley (Farmington, Conn.) also recovered on the second day, shedding four strokes from her first-day 85 for an 81 on Sunday. Whaley finished with a 166 for the tournament, tying her with teammate Hannah Russell (Monson, Mass.) for eight place. Russell, who shot a 79 on Saturday, turned in an 87 on Sunday.

Freshman Taylor Lambrou (Baldwin, N.Y.) was three-strokes better on Sunday, finishing with a 94 as she checked in in 14th place while Angelica Muscatelli (North Providence, R.I.) finished tied for 16th.

"It was a disappointment not to win, but this team's day will come," O'Connor said. "They work hard and it's beginning to show. We had three golfers in the top 10 for the first time and the team low score for the day."

Quinnipiac competes in the St. Francis (N.Y.) Invitational on Monday, Oct. 15 at the Mutton Town Club in East Norwich, N.Y.
