Final Results Final Results

A year ago, a final-round score of 72 broke a three-way tie to give Kelly Shon the Lehigh Invitational title.

This year, Shon turned in the best second round of anyone in the 46-player field, and no tiebreaker was necessary.

By four shots over Harvard's Tiffany Lim, Shon claimed her second straight Lehigh Invitational title Monday at the Saucon Valley Country Club in Bethlehem, Pa., finishing at 2-under with a second-round 69 after opening with a 73 Sunday.

The title is Princeton's 64th individual medalist honor since the program gained varsity status 22 years ago. It's Shon's fifth medalist honor, all in less than two years. She won the Ivy League Championship last April, capping a run of four medalist honors in little more than a year beginning with the Low Country Intercollegiate title in March 2012.

Harvard kept Princeton from a successful defense of its team title, finishing 12 shots in front of the second-place Tigers while placing four players in the field's top eight. Princeton and Harvard were two of three Ivy League teams in the nine-team field along with Dartmouth, which placed seventh overall.

The tournament concluded the fall slate for the Tigers, who began the season with the Princeton Invitational in mid-September before continuing on to tournaments hosted by Vanderbilt, Texas and finally Lehigh.
