Bears Fourth At Ivy League Championship

April 18, 2005

East Hampton, NY - The Brown women's golf team battled back from a slow start, navigating its way from seventh place after the first round of play to a fourth place finish at the Ivy League Women's Golf Championship at the historic Maidstone Country Club. Princeton captured the Ivy title with a three-round 970, followed by Yale (1,005), Penn (1,044), Brown (1,065), Columbia (1,070), Harvard (1,086) and Dartmouth (1,091).

The howling winds of Long Island's East End kept the scores high throughout the weekend as the Ivy golfers tried to tame one of the nation's Top-100 golf courses. Brown freshman Blythe Crane (Chelsea, MI) was the top scorer for the Bears, placing 16th individually with a three-round 266 (94, 82, 90). Her second round 82 was the seventh top score of the round.

Junior Eleanor Thomas (Auburn, AL) placed 18th individually, shooting scored of 95-88-84-267. Freshman Tiffany Wade (Alameda, CA) shot a three-round 270 (89, 89, 92) to finish 21st. Sophomore Elizabeth Fisher (Washington, DC) carded rounds of 98, 94, 81, and junior Emily Washington (Pasadena, CA) shot rounds of 97, 93, 83 to each finish at 273 for the Bears. Fisher's final round 81 was the fifth best score in the 35-player field on Sunday.
