Cheng is the third Crimson golfer in program history to finish first in the tournament—the first since Hu in 2012—and was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year.
“It’s such a big honor to receive [that] award,” Cheng said. “[Sunday] was overall a happy day with many surprises.”
This is the third time in as many years that a Harvard woman golfer has received this honor, with Cheng following in the footsteps of current teammates Lin and Lim.
Other individual players were recognized for their performances at the tournament. Lim joined Cheng as a top-five finisher, earning both of them a first-team All-Ivy selection.
The top-10 finishers earned second-team All-Ivy honors, and Hu and Lin earned this distinction. Hu has earned All-Ivy recognition for the past three years.
From here, the Crimson will advance to the NCAA Regionals.
“The whole team is really excited, and we’re really excited to get ready for Regionals,” Lim said. “We feel like we have a real chance to be competitors this year.”
