From NYU Athletics
The New York University women's golf team captured its fourth consecutive University Athletic Association (UAA) Championship by the slimmest of margins in a tight three-team battle. The Violets, with a score of 631, edged Washington University in St. Louis (632) and Carnegie Mellon University (633) at the two-day championship, which was held on Saturday and Sunday, March 9-10, at the 5,817-yard, par-72 Conservatory Course at the Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, FL.
The Violets are currently ranked #7 in the nation by the Women's Collegiate Golf Association (WGCA), while the Wash U. Bears are #11 and the CMU Tartans are #15.
Patty Treevichaphan led NYU by shooting a par-72, the lowest round of any golfer on Sunday. She carded 79 on Saturday, and her two-day total of 151 was good for a second-place finish individually. Only Carnegie Mellon's Grace Chen, with a two-day score of 147 (73-74), finished ahead of Treevichaphan.
NYU's Arshia Mahant shot 155 (78-77) and tied for third place overall.
Arisa Kimura finished at 161 (78-83), Jessica Wu shot 164 (81-83) and Jenni Bluetling finished with 166 (82-84).
"Great accomplishment by our team," said Head Coach Brad Johnson. "We hung tough in an incredibly tight tournament and showed resilience in pulling this one out."
