Jeffs Open Spring with Second-Place Showing at Mass. State Championships, Fifth at Northeast Championships

April 25, 2005

S. HADLEY, MA - The Amherst College women’s golf team opened its spring slate with a second-place showing at the Massachusetts State Championships, hosted by Mt. Holyoke College at The Orchards Golf Course on Friday, and followed with a fifth-place finish at the Northeast Championships, also played at The Orchards, on Sunday. Sophomore Sarah Harper (Rochester, MN) led the way, placing sixth and 12th individually.

Harper tied senior teammate Meg Sullivan (Northampton, MA) with a round of 85 on Friday, while fellow senior Emily Foran (Dallas, PA) finished just one shot back at 86, good for eighth place. Senior Sarah Godwin (Swarthmore, PA) and rookie Ali Berman (Boca Raton, FL) rounded out the Jeffs’ scoring with scores of 87 and 93, respectively.

Saturday’s play at the Northeast Championships was postponed due to inclement weather, but Harper returned on Sunday to fire an 88 and tie for 12th individually. Sullivan and Godwin posted matching rounds of 90, tying for 22nd, while Foran placed 32nd with a 94 and junior Melissa Sidman (Bethesda, MD) capped Amherst’s scoring with a 105.

Harvard University topped both tournaments, winning the Mass. State Championships with a 333 and besting the field at the Northeast Championships with a 331. The Crimson’s Carrie Baizer tied Boston University’s Brenna Gibson to take home Friday’s medallist honors, and Harvard’s Jennifer Cronin posted a 78 to win on Sunday.

Amherst returns to action Saturday with a dual match at Williams College.
