Lambrou's 11-Stroke Improvement Highlights Second Round Of Brown Bear Invitational

Quinnipiac women's golf freshman Taylor Lambrou (Baldwin, N.Y.) bounced back from a team-low 99 on the first day of the Brown Bear Invitational to card an 88 for the second round for an 11-stroke improvement. Lambrou finished with a 187 for the tournament. 

Freshmen Krissy Unger (N.Y.) and Jenn Whaley (Farmington, Conn.) both tied for 46th at the 2013 Brown Bear Invitational at the par 72, 6,086-yard Rhode Island Country Club in Barrington, R.I. Quinnipiac finished 13th out of 14 teams - ahead of Sacred Heart.

"We had a pretty good weekend in Barrington," head coach John O'Connor said. "The conditions were good, and we had great competition against several Ivy League teams. The team is moving in right direction." 

Unger dropped off from her first-day 80 (+8) to shoot an 88 (+16) to finish with a +24, 168 a the two-day event. Whaley improved on her second day at Rhode Island Country Club, as she shed two strokes from her first day total. Senior captain Kayla Ketcheson (St. Andrews, Manitoba) shot an 86 (+14) for the second consecutive day to finish at 172 (+28). 

"Right now, the scores aren't as low as I'd like," O'Connor explained. "But we're preparing for the Northeast Conference Tournament next weekend, and hopefully we'll see some big improvements between now and then. I'm very proud of the team and I expect big things next week."

Quinnipiac is idle until Apr. 26-28 when it travels to Daytona Beach, Fla. to compete in the 2013 Northeast Conference Championship at LPGA International.
