Oct. 8, 2013
Junior Victoria Nguyenput together another great outing for the fall season after finishing runner-up at the St. John's Invitational. The Saints finished in second place, 13 strokes behind the overall leader St. John's.
A week after winning the ECAC Championship, the Saints continued their tremendous team play, shooting a combined 630 for the Tournament. Nguyen improved on her first round score by shooting a 74 Tuesday afternoon to finish one stroke behind the Tournament medalist, St. John's Rachel Carpenter.
"The girls put themselves in a position to win but we just came up short. I was very pleased with our effort this weekend," said Dave Wronowski. "Victoria continued her excellent play capping off one of the best fall seasons by a Siena golfer in our program's history."
Valerie Wijaya finished tied in eighth place after a second round 78. Kylie Strijek, last week's ECAC Medalist, finished strong on Tuesday afternoon to finish in the 16 position.
Wronowski continued, "Overall this was a very productive season for the team and I was very happy with our play."
The fantastic play from the Saints freshmen Kristen Bromley and Stephanie Sullivanhelped keep the Saints within striking distance and were a major part of the team's Tournament success. Bromley and Sullivan placed 25th and 26th, respectively.
Coach Wronowski praised his freshmen class on Tuesday saying, "The freshmen Stephanie and Kristen were both key contributors this week and I was happy to see them step up when we needed them."
The Saints conclude their season, playing in four Tournaments and never finished outside of the top-4, including their first place finish at the ECAC Championships.
Coach Wronowski finished up by saying, "we are excited for the spring and look forward to our off season preparations."
The Saints will now prepare for their spring season. To stay up-to-date on your women's golf team, visit SienaSaints.com.
