NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Thursday featured the Harvard women golf team's spring training trip match against Nova Southeastern.

Though the temperature remained in the 70s for most of the day, gusty winds and scattered thunderstorms made course conditions challenging and kept the players on their toes.

Nova Southeastern, winners of the last three D-II NCAA national championships and a powerhouse in their division, provided the Harvard women with a great opportunity to test their competitive skills after a long winter break.

Despite the testy weather and the first opportunity to play outside this spring, all five players in the Harvard line-up kept scores in the seventies. The round wasn't smooth sailing for all of the Crimson, and some of the women saw uncharacteristically high numbers within their rounds.  Nonetheless, each player stayed committed and focused, and the team emerged victorious with a total score of 311 to Nova's 322.

Leading the pack for Harvard was freshman Tiffany Lim who shot an impressive 75. Close behind her were Bonnie Hu '14 with a 78 and Christine Cho '12, Jane Lee '12, and Brenna Nelsen '15 all with 79s. The low score for the day came from Nova's Argentinian freshman, Liliana Cammisa, who shot a 74.

After practicing in the indoor facility all winter, the Crimson was excited to see their hard work pay off in a victory. The overall good play displayed in the match is an encouraging sign for the team as it dives into the spring season.

A special thank you to PGA National for providing an excellent venue for the match on its Palmer course and Nova Southeastern for the providing great competition.  And, sincere thanks to our Friends who make this annual trip possible.
