BEALLSVILLE, Md.—Three Columbia golfers—first-year Emily Chu (fifth at +8), senior Jackie Chulya (13th at +10) and junior Nancy Xu (25th at +15)—all placed among the field’s top-25 at the 12th annual Hoya Invitational Tuesday at Four Streams Golf Course. As a team, Columbia concluded the tournament in seventh place out of 15 teams at plus-53, finishing with a 305-308-304-613.

Playing consistent golf, Chu shot a 74 in Tuesday’s final round to finish at +8 (76-74-74-224) for the two-day event. She finished sixth among tournament participants in par-4 scoring (+5 at 4.17 average), seventh among par-5 scoring (-2, 4.83) and registered 32 pars in the two-day invitational. Chu finished five strokes behind individual winner Alexa Popowitz of Georgetown, who shot a three-over-par 71-73-75-219.

With her fifth place finish, Chu registered her first top-5 finish of her career and Columbia’s fourth top-5 finish of the season. Senior Camilla Vik and Chulya both placed among the top-5 golfers at the Princeton Invitational (Oct. 1-2) and first-year Ridhima Dilawari finished in fifth place at the Yale Intercollegiate (Oct. 7-8).

Hole-by-hole scores were not available.

Chulya carded a 76 in Tuesday’s final round to finish in 13th place with a 71-79-76-226 (+10). On Monday, Chulya came out playing effective golf as she finished the first round in second place after firing a 71, just one stroke behind the leader. In the second round, she shot a 79 to finish with a six-over-par 150. She ranked among tournament top-20 leaders with a 4.27 (+8) par-4 scoring average, 5.00 (Even) part-5 scoring average, six birdies and 34 pars.

Xu shot a 76 on Tuesday to finish in 25th place at 78-77-76-231 (+15). She ranked among tournament leaders in par-3 scoring with a 3.08 average (+1).
