Women’s Golf Flies to Fast Start

The St. John’s women’s golf team won the Tignanelli Towson Invitational by five strokes Monday.

The Red Storm had a successful first day at the Invitational, shooting a 305(+17) and acquiring a 4 stroke lead.

Senior Jennifer Neville flourished on day one as she shot a 74(+2), which led the Johnnies and put her into a two-way tie for the individual lead.

On day 2, the Red Storm showed no signs of slowing down as they shot a 306. Their largest lead would stretch to 10 before the defending champions, Old Dominion, went on a late surge before ultimately falling short.

“I’m really proud of the way our team played this week, it was a great way to start our season,” said head coach Ambry Bishop in a press release.

Junior Harin Lee went on to record the best round of any player in the field as she played one over in her final nine holes.
The Red Storm will host its first ever Women’s Intercollegiate at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, N.Y. on Sept. 17 and 18.
