But the Spiders rallied late to finish at 52-over 916 and beat the Terriers by two shots to win a second straight Patriot League title. All five players finished T-10 or better for Richmond, including Isabelle Rusher (T-3, 11 over).
INDIVIDUAL CHAMPION: Adela Cejnarova (6-over 222) took medalist honors by three shots and was one of three Boston players in the top 3 on the leaderboard.
QUOTABLE: “This was a nail-biter all the way to the end. Our team really come through the last few holes. … They are the grittiest group I’ve ever coached.” – Richmond head coach Ali Wright.
CHIP SHOTS: Lehigh finished third as a team, but did place two golfers in the top 10 – Elizabeth McGarrigle (T-3) and Reagan Jahn (ninth). … Richmond, ranked No. 155 by Golfweek, will be the only team from the Patriot League moving on to regionals.
