Bears' "Fab Four" Place Fourth At Bucknell Fall Classic


Oct. 25, 2004

Lewisburg, PA - Coach Mike Harbor's women's golf team knew their backs would be against the wall with just four players, instead of the usual five, available for the Bucknell Fall Classic. None of the players could let down if the Bears were to remain in contention for the title.

The Brown women's golf team's "Fab Four" responded by shooting 321 the first day of competition, the third best score of the day, and finished with 348 on the second day to place fourth out of 17 teams with a team score of 669. St. John's captured the championship at 621, followed by St Francis-PA at 648 and Harvard at 649. The Bears tied with host Bucknell for fourth place, followed by Radford (672), Youngstown State (674), Dartmouth (680), Penn (691), Albany (695), Kutztown (698), Fairfield (700), Lehigh (702), Central Connecticut (717), Bucknell Orange (735), McDaniel College (774) and SUNY-Cortland (809).

Freshman Blythe Crane (Chelsea, MI) was solid with a two-day 161 (80-81) to lead the Brown scorers and place ninth individually. Junior Emily Washington (Pasadena, CA) (80, 89) and sophomore Elizabeth Fisher (Washington, DC) (83, 86) each finished in 27th place individually with a two-day 169. Freshman Tiffany Wade (Alameda, CA) shot a sparkling 78 on the first day of competition and completed the tournament with a two-day 170 to place 29th individually.
