BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin women's golf team finished fifth at this weekend's NESCAC Fall Qualifier, just missing out on earning a team bid to the NESCAC Championship Tournament in the spring.

However, three Polar Bears qualified individually and will compete in the championship in April. 

Tournament Highlights

  • The Polar Bears sat in fifth place after day one, just five shots off of fourth-place Hamilton, but couldn't improve on their position in day two. 
  • Bowdoin finished 342-352-694 as a team, ending behind the Continentals (679) by 15 strokes. 
  • However, the top four individuals outside of the qualifying teams earn a trip to the NESCAC Championship in the spring and the Polar Bears claimed three individual spots.
  • Caroline Farber, who finished in a tie for 12th overall, shot a 164 (80-84) to earn a bid, as did Abbie Kaestle, who finished in 18th at 169 (80-89). The third spot went to Crystal Chong, who shot a 180 to finish in 23rd, just ahead of teammate Emme McCabe (181) in 24th. 

Up Next

  • The fall season has concluded and Farber, Kaestle and Chong will compete in the NESCAC Championship on April 25-26, 2020, at Taconic Golf Club in Williamstown, Mass.
