Siena Women’s Golf slipped into a tie for sixth place following the Second Round of the MAAC Championships at Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Senior captain Kristen Bromley remains in contention for the individual title, as she will enter Sunday’s Final Round just four strokes off the lead.
“We were very disappointed with our scores today,” said head coach Dave Wronowski. “Unfortunately, we had a lot of bad swings, and caught some bad breaks. It was a frustrating day across the board.”
Defending MAAC Champion Quinnipiac improved its score by 13 strokes, and will carry a nine-shot advantage over nearest challenger UAlbany into Championship Sunday. Siena is tied for sixth with Niagara – just three strokes behind fifth place Hartford – but 50 strokes back of the pace-setting Bobcats.
Bromley, who has carded top-10 finishes in each of her first three MAAC Championships, stands tied for fourth overall and is just four strokes back of co-leaders Alexandra Sazhin of Quinnipiac and Paige Fujihara of UAlbany. Bromley birdied 18, and added 10 pars in recording a Second Round score of 79.
“Regardless of what happens tomorrow, Kristen is going to go out as one of the best players we’ve ever had,” reflected Wronowski. “She’s had an awesome, consistent career, has been a leader both on and off the golf course, and I’m very proud of her and everything she’s done for the program over her four years. I’m looking forward to her Final Round tomorrow, and hope the putts will drop for her.”
Sara Riso also remains in the Top-10, following a round of 81. The sophomore is eight strokes off the individual lead after carding 10 pars Saturday.
“Kristen and Sarah have carried us this weekend,” explained Wronowski. “Both have played really well, and better than their scores would indicate.”
The Saints will be paired with Fairfield and La Salle for Sunday’s Final Round, and tee off from the 10th hole at 7:30 a.m. ESPN3 will broadcast Final Round coverage beginning at 10 a.m.
