Panther Women’s Golf Team Earns Regional, National Rankings

COMPLETE NATIONAL RANKINGS

The Middlebury women's golf team wrapped up a successful fall portion of its schedule, earning both regional and national rankings from Golfstat for the fall season. The Panthers recorded a No. 3 regional spot behind defending national champion New York University and Williams. Middlebury also checked into the top-25 national rankings in 20th place.  

As a team, the Panther women finished in the top-three places during each of their five fall tournaments. They won the team title at the George Phinney Jr. Golf Classic, tallied a runner-up effort at the season-opening St. Lawrence Invitational, including a fall-best team score of 301 during round two, and tied for second during the Mount Holyoke Invitational. Middlebury also placed third at both the Ann S. Batchelder Invitational and the Williams Fall Invitational.

Individually, three Panthers are regionally ranked at the end of the fall season. First-year golfer Katie Murphy is third, tying for second in her initial collegiate tournament at the Ann S. Batchelder Tournament with a second-round 72 on day two. Senior Chloe Levins is ninth in the regional rankings and classmate Blake Yaccino is 14th, as both Panthers fired a season-best 71 in the second round of the St. Lawrence Invitational.
