The Seton Hall’s women’s golf team began its fall season this past weekend at the Nittany Lion Invitational in State College, Pa. The Pirates had a strong performance and finished in fourth out of 16 teams with a final score of 885.
The Pirates struggled in the first round with a score of 304, but ultimately turned it around with a score of 291 in the second round and 290 in the third round. Lizzie Win shot par with a scoreline of 76-70-70-216. Win, now a junior, is looking to build off last season where she was named to the 2018 All-Big East Team.
Mia Kness finished second for Seton Hall, shooting 8-over-par with a scoreline of 77-73-74-224. Kness is set to be a key contributor to this year’s Pirates squad, as she was named the 2018 Big East Freshman of the Year in 2017-18.
Carolina Ronchel Salas finished for the third for Seton Hall and shot 10-over-par, finishing with a scoreline of 78-75-73-226. Salas, a transfer from LIU-Brooklyn, was named a member of the All-Northeast Conference First Team last season.
Finishing fourth for the Pirates in her first collegiate tournament was Sarah Fouratt, as she shot 12-over-par with a scoreline of 82-73-73-228. Just behind Fouratt was Sammie Staudt, who finished in fifth at 16-over-par and 73-77-82-232.
Overall, the Pirates pieced together a solid performance at the tournament, but they will look to improve as the year progresses.
The team returns to action on Sunday, Sept. 29 at the Princeton Invitational.
