Women’s Golf Set for Boston College Intercollegiate
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – The Penn State Women’s Golf Team will travel to Bay State this weekend to compete in Boston College Intercollegiate at Blue Hill Country Club on Monday and Tuesday.
The Nittany Lions will look to bounce back north after a hectic weekend in the south when they tackle the 6,137-yard par 72 course in Canton, Massachusetts. The BC Intercollegiate, which was brought back in 2017, returns after a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic and has a field of 15 teams.
Monday will feature 36 holes of continuous play starting with a shotgun tee off at 8:45 a.m., while Tuesday’s final round will feature split tee times on holes 1 and 10 starting at 8:00 a.m.
Live score will be available via GolfStat.
- The five Penn State holders will remain unchanged for the first two tournaments of the season. Senior Sarah Willis (Eaton, Ohio) is joined by junior classmates Mathilde Delavallade (Royan, France) and Isha Dhruva (Katy, Texas) with a freshman Drew nienhaus (St. Louis, Missouri) and second year Victoria Tip-Aucha (Vienna, Virginia).
- Second year Maria arizaga (Samborondon, Ecuador) will compete as an individual in his second tournament of the season after finishing tied for 35th at the Nittany Lion Invitational to open the season.

- The par 72 route evokes centuries-old golfing memories, as each of the 18 holes is unique in its nature and deserves praise. A putting green and a full-service driving range will make your day on the links a day you will cherish a lifetime.
