PITTSFORD, N.Y. – Holy Cross sophomore co-captain Morgan Powers (Glastonbury, Conn.) carded a two-day total of 164 strokes (+20) to help the women's golf team capture the Nazareth Invitational held at the Monroe and Mendon Country Clubs on Saturday and Sunday, April 27-28. Powers claimed the tournament medalist as the Crusaders shot a combined team score of 713 strokes (+137).

The University of Ottawa finished in second place (764), while St. John's Fisher (770) and Nazareth (811) placed in third and fourth, respectively. Elmira came in fifth with a total score of 860 as Houghton rounded out the field at 941 strokes.
