Following a fantastic showing at the Middlebury Invitational at the end of September, the Jeffs looked to continue their strong season at the Williams Fall Classic. The Classic is held at the Williams College golf course where Amherst has found success in the past.

The Jeffs finished third of 11 teams at Midd., highlighted by a fourth place finish by sophomore Jamie Gracie. Gracie continued her strong play by finishing tied for 12th overall.

Although Gracie continued to play well for the Jeffs, the team finished in eighth place.

The Williams A team won the tournament with a two-day score of 624, led by top overall finisher Shelby Shote. Shote scored a 148 on the weekend.

New York University finished in second place, with Ithaca College following close behind in third place. The Williams Ephs’ B team finished in fourth place, while Middlebury rounded out the top-five.

Zoe Wong '18 continued an impressive first-year campaign by finishing tied for 24th overall with an overall score of 170. Patricia Huang '17 and CJ Bernstein '15 were the other scorers for the Jeffs.

Although the Jeffs didn't play as well as they would have liked, they will look to finish their fall season on a high note at the Wellesley Invitational.

Following the Wellesley Invitational, the Jeffs won't compete again until the snow melts in the spring. The team will also look forward to the return of junior Devyn Gardner, who has been abroad during the fall season.
