Sophomore Kate Weiss had a strong showing at the Williams Invitational, shooting a team-low 75 on Saturday and finishing with a score of 156.

The Amherst College women’s golf team notched a first-place finish at the Williams Spring Invitational on Saturday and Sunday, April 22-23 to conclude regular season action.

Competing against a six-team field, the Mammoths, led by first-year Morgan Yurosek and senior Jamie Gracie, shot an impressive 304 on day one and a 308 on day two to claim the victory.

Amherst finished the first day six strokes ahead of Williams thanks to standout performances by Kate Weiss (75), Gracie (76) and Yurosek (76).

First-years Jessica Jeong and Emily Young rounded out the first day action with scores of 77 and 83, respectively.

The second day of competition was close, with the Ephs shooting a 307 to Amherst’s 308. The Mammoths’ buffer from the first day, however, proved the difference. Yurosek and Gracie continued to spearhead Amherst’s success, and each shot a 75 on the second day of action.

Jeong matched her score from day one with another 77, while Weiss and Young rounded out the Mammoths’ scoring, by carding rounds of 81 and 82, respectively.

Amherst finished the tournament with a 612, while Williams came in second with 617. The two Little Three rivals stood out, with the next closest scorer being Middlebury with a 641.

The Mammoths wrap up their spring season with this win, and look forward to carrying their success on to the 2017-2018 season.
