Williamstown, MA–The leaves are changing and people are rapidly making their way to the Berkshires to witness the beauty that is the Williamstown foliage. For 90 players and their coaches, the trek to the secluded Berkshires is also a chance to play the Williams College Invitational, held biannually at Taconic Golf Club. This tournament does not have a good track record of dry weather but today was a sunny one, with slight winds. After today's play, the Ephs lead the field with a 315, NYU is close behind with 319, and Middlebury sits in third with a 322.

The Ephs were led by freshman Joanna Kim who shot her collegiate best, 4-over 75. Her score puts her second individually for the tournament.

"I think the conditions today were fairly difficult and the course played hard but I was proud about how the team pulled through and gave it their all until the last hole. With my own game today I was happy with my approach shots and was able to capitalize on them. Im hoping to improve my shots off the tee and take some more time around the greens," Kim said.

Next up for the Ephs is senior Cordelia Chan with a birdie-less 78. Sophomore Stella Woo was next with an 80, followed by freshman Olivia White with an 82, and sophomore Holly Davenport with an 85. 

An perk to playing at home means that the team also got to play three individuals! Senior Isabella Wang led the way with an 83. Sophomore Mehr Sewant was close behind with an 85. Junior Cindy Wang completed the team's scoring with an 89. 

The Ephs will continue play tomorrow at 9am.
