WILMINGTON, Del. – The Ursinus College women's golf team started the fall season in the strongest of fashions, capturing the title at the Swarthmore-Neumann Invitational on Sunday.
Senior Sarah Thompson matched her collegiate low with an 85 at Rock Manor Golf Club to finish runner-up and help the Bears card a cumulative score of 394 and claim their sixth title in the last three seasons. Thompson's other 85 came during the first round of the Centennial Conference championship a year ago.
The tournament ultimately functioned as a dual match with Neumann, which compiled a score of 554. Muhlenberg had two of the top three finishers, including individual medalist Kat Hodges (82), but did not bring a fourth golfer and thus did not qualify for the team title.
Junior Emily McGarrigle was right behind Thompson with an 87 to land in fourth place.
The Bears return to the links on September 26, when they host their annual fall invitational at Raven's Claw Golf Club.
