Women's golf tees off in Hawaii

  • Teeing off | Senior Michelle Piyapattra and the Lions will get their spring season underway in Hawai’i today

The Columbia women’s golf team returns to the course Tuesday, opening its spring season at the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational hosted by the University of Hawaii. The Lions enter the tournament ranked a program high, No. 83 nationally. The Light Blue will be one of 16 teams competing at the par-72 Kane’ohe Klipper Golf Course on Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kane’ohe, O’ahu.

Columbia will bring a lineup featuring both experience and youth to the course. Senior Michelle Piyapattra will lead the team in the two-day, 54-hole tournament after shooting a team-low 74.58 average round this fall. Joining her are first-years Jackie Chuyla, Rachel Shi, and Camilla Vik, who round out the top-four lowest scoring averages on the team. The invitational will be a homecoming for sophomore Monique Ishikawa, a native of Kailua, Hawaii.

The women will tee-off at 2 p.m. EST.
