Golf team takes sixth

The Carnegie Mellon women’s golf team participated in their inaugural event on Saturday.

For the 2013–14 season, the team is under club status to prepare for the transition to the intercollegiate level next season.

The Tartans finished sixth overall at the Thiel College Invitational with a team score of 446.

Senior Ali Nichols led the way with a fourth place individual finish, shooting a 94 on the day. Sophomore Yoon Hee Ha also put up a strong individual performance with a round of 97, good enough to tie for sixth place.

Junior Brooke Kuei and first-year Molly Higgins rounded out the history-making squad.

The Tartans next compete on Thursday at the Saint Vincent Invitational held at Glengarry Gold Links in Latrobe, Pa.
