NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Harvard stormed back from 10 strokes down after the first round to win the Yale Fall Invitational by nine strokes in a rain-shortened weekend at the Yale Golf Course.

This year's format called for 36 holes on the first day and 18 on the second in a twist of previous formats. Pennsylvania led by 10 strokes after the opening round with an impressive 301 but the Crimson produced a second round score of 299 to pull away from the field. Sunday's round was called off at 10 a.m. due to standing water and more forecasted rain

Junior Mia Kabasakalis, despite a three-put on the 18th of round two,  led the Crimson in both rounds with a 76-73-149 to finish second individually in the field

Freshman Katie Sylvan and senior Claire Sheldon also placed in the Top 10 with scores of 77-76-153 and 79-75-154, respectively.

The team now has two weeks off before their final fall tournament. The Crimson will play in Lehigh's tournament October 17-18 at Saucon Valley Country Club.
