Walker’s Plays in 36th Annual Pippy O’Connor Golf Tournament

Ethel Walker Varsity Golf 2022 Pippy O'Connor Tournament

Walker’s traveled to Auburndale, Massachusetts to compete in the 36th Annual Pippy O’Connor Golf Tournament. The team left campus at 5:30 a.m. to head north to Woodland Golf Club. Coaches Carrington and Davis led the players Avery Bloom ’23, Maddie Connelly ’24, Alexia Grech ’23, and Natalie Stewart ’23 to their 8:30 a.m. tee time.

The team competed in the 9-hole portion of the tournament. Bloom finished in the Top 10.

Coach Carrington reflected on the day: “What a beautiful setting! It was a challenging course with pin placements and rough emulating the US Open. Players also had to deal with a chilly start and a stiff breeze all morning. The coaches were impressed with the team’s grit and hope to use the experience as a stepping stone to next year’s 18-hole tournament.”
