Women's Golf Wins At Wellesley
September 28, 2008
The Middlebury College women's golf team captured the first annual Ann S. Batchelder Golf Invitational hosted by Wellesley in a steady rain. Originally scheduled as a two-day affair, the rain shortened event took place at the par-72 Nehoiden Golf Course with Middlebury taking the 2008 team title with a 335 in the seven-team event.
The Panthers took top honors by five strokes, compiling the day's best score of 335. Led by first-year player Flora Weeks (Seattle, Wash.), who tallied a 79 and finished tied for second overall, Middlebury got two other top-10 finishes from sophomore Courtney Mazzei (Larkin Valley, Calif.) (5th - 82) and senior Julie Ellenberger (Concord, Mass.) (9th - 84). Sophomore Jessica Bluestein (Tuczon, Ariz.) came in with a 90, while sophomore Elizabeth Hirsch (New York, N.Y.) fired a 98.
