The women’s golf team established themselves as a dominant force this weekend in the opening tournament of their spring season in Poughkeepsie, New York. Out of the twelve teams at the Vassar College Invitational, the purple and white finished second with a team score of 649, falling only to NESCAC rival Williams College. Distancing themselves from the rest of the pack, Amherst finished 29 strokes ahead of third-place Middlebury and 31 strokes ahead of fourth-place SUNY Cortland.
