Women's Golf Claims Fifth at Bryant Invitational

Sept. 23, 2003

The Siena women's golf team shot a two-day total of 690 to claim fifth place at the Bryant Invitational held at Beaver River Country Club in Richmond, R.I. The tournament was the first for the Saints in the 2003-04 season.

Siena's score of 690 (351, 339) was just one stroke shy of fourth-place Boston University (689). Dartmouth claimed the tournament championship with an overall score of 644, while Columbia (649) and LIU (673) took the second and third spots, respectively.

Sophomore Jillian Blanchard finished among the tournament's top-20, claiming the ninth spot overall, and led the Saints with a two-day total of 162. Her second day score of 72 was a tournament one-day best and it re-wrote the Siena women's golf record books for the lowest one-day individual score.

Senior Bridgette Palin (168) also landed among the top-20 individually.

The Saints will return to action this weekend, September 27-28, as they travel to Princeton, N.J. for the Princeton Invitational.
