As the winter weather finally begins to establish itself, the fall season comes to a close for the Georgetown women’s golf team. Its most recent outing, the Rollins Invitational at the Mid Pines Golf Club in Southern Pines, N.C., left the team tied for 10th place in a competitive field of East Coast schools.

The invitational marked the Hoyas’ fourth top-10 finish of the season out of five events in which they participated – including a second place finish at the Harvard Invitational, a third place performance at Rutgers and sixth place at Princeton.

Georgetown’s best finish came from junior Connie Isler, who carded a 25-over par 241 (77, 86, 78), putting her in a three-way tie for 33rd place. Isler finished 10th in her last tournament at Harvard.

Sophomores Nicole Hayashi and Christy Larrimore found themselves as two members of a five-way tie for 40th place, both shooting 29-over par 249 – 80, 84, 81, and 82, 84, 79, respectively. Hayashi finished the Harvard Invitational in forth place. She was also the team’s top finisher at the Princeton Invitational, finishing 17th.

Taking 49th place was freshman Maggie Ward with a 253 (85, 83, 85) while senior Simone Petrella finished 59th, shooting 100, 88, 98, for a total of 286.

James Madison University took the 54-hole event with 911, 47 over par (299, 305, 307). Tying for second place, both the University of Kentucky and the University of Alabama carded 916 – 307, 298, 311 and 294, 315, 307, respectively. Miami, shooting 922 (312, 305, 305) took sole possession of fourth place while the hostesses from Rollins College finished fifth with 933 (317, 309, 307).

Individually, Alabama junior Darby Sligh dominated the par-72, 6,114-yard course, shooting 68, 68, 75 to finish with a three-under par 211. Sligh finished as the only player under par. Claiming second place, junior Carol Green from James Madison put together a 219 (76, 74, 69). Freshman Alison Walshe of Boston College followed close behind in third place with a four-over par 220 (73, 74, 73) while freshman Cindy Shin of Yale put together a three round total of 224, eight over par (7, 72, 75). Senior Camilla Hilland of Miami and freshman Erin Faulkner of Rollins College tied for fifth at 10-over par 226 (76, 77, 73 and 80, 75, 71, respectively).

The team takes a long break until resuming play in the spring.
