Williamstown, MA— It was yet another beautiful, sunny day for the Ephs women! The sun was moving in and out making the atmosphere humid and windy at times with the fairways still damp and moisty. Players were able to enjoy the lift-clean and place rule due to the sprinkling shower that visited the course the night before. After a short but fast start to the Spring season, the squad kept their strong performance where all 5 ephs placed a score in the 70s. The squad shot a 303, and they are in the lead by 10 strokes, ahead of Williams Team B with a 313 and third being Amherst College with 315.
Freshman Joanna Kim(T1) , even with two double bogeys, managed to score a strong round, one over par at 72 with 4 super birdies.
"I was able to have a smooth swing for my iron shots which allowed for me to put myself in positions to capitalize on each hole. I feel like as a team, we always strive to improve on the second day and I'm excited to see improvement and even lower scores from my teammates tomorrow," Kim shared after her round.
Sophomore Mehr Sawant broke through with a shinining 74 placing at a solid tied third place. Junior Holly Davenport and Stella Woo both posted 76's placing at 5th together. Senior Cordelia Chan(T7) came in with a 77 then one shot back at 78 was freshman Olivia White. Senior Isabella Wang(T11) finished off the 5th Team A score with a 79. Williams Team B members, sophomore Gabby Martin posted a 81 and junior Cindy Wang finished off the round with a 82.
The depth of the Williams team really showed today when many players kept grinding through the round even when some shots were not dropping as they wished.
"You know you have a good team when seven of our nine players shoot rounds in the 70's but it was still just about an average day for us. We made some unusual errors, and we should have made more putts. Tomorrow, we'll have another go at it, and we can't wait to finish our regular season at home- on a high note," said head coach Tomas Adalsteinsson.
The team plays again tomorrow at 9am.
