The Boston University women’s golf team traveled to Sarasota, Florida for the Harvard Invitational and came back with a record score, good enough for second place.
Over the 54-hole total, the Terriers tallied 896 strokes, which set a school record. They bested the old record, set at their previous invitational, by two strokes.
Standouts from BU include junior Phyllis Tang and senior Megan Carter. Both Carter and Tang shot scores of 222, tied for third in the competition.
Senior Adela Cejnarova placed 13th in the competition, coming in at two under par in her second round on Sunday with a score of 70. The Czech Republic native shot a 222 for the invitational, finishing just behind her fellow Terriers.
Freshman Abby Parsons also finished respectably, as she shot three 77s for a final score of 231. The North Carolina native placed 18th in the tournament.
The Terriers have shown monumental strides as the season has progressed. Over its first six matches, BU placed in the second half of the field. Yet, in each of the past two matches, BU has placed second, giving them momentum heading into their final two regular season matches and then the Patriot League Championships.
