Bloomfield, NJ–The leaves are changing and the temperatures are dropping en route to the Ephs final tournament of the season. With snow around the corner up north, the team travelled three hours south to the NYU Invitational held at Forest Hill Field Club. The host team, NYU is in the lead with a team total of 305. Williams is in second with 313 and Amherst is in third with a 330.

The forecast for the weekend showed a gloomy and rainy weekend but the field lucked out with a dry day, with times of sun as well!

The team was led by senior Cordelia Chan and freshman Olivia White who paced the way with matching 76s. 

"I was hitting fairways today which definitely made things easier. Hopefully I can do the same tomorrow, so that I can put myself in good positions to score," White said.

White sported two back to back birdies on her way to her second lowest collegiate score. Next up is freshman Joanna Kim with an 80, sophomore Stella Woo with an 81, and sophomore Holly Davnport with an 82.

The team also brought senior Isabella Wang as an indiviudal who shot an 82.

"I was pleased to see how calm and collected the team was on the course today and we are getting closer to playing our best game. Tomorrow, we will continue to focus on our game and what we can improve on," head coach Tomas Adalsteinsson said.

The team will attempt the comeback tomorrow with an 8am shotgun.
