Ha, Marchand lead women’s Porter Cup

LEWISTON, N.Y. (WIVB) – Jennifer Ha and Brittany Marchand have the early lead in the second annual women’s Porter Cup at Niagara Falls Country Club, carding first-round 69’s.

The top two local players on the leaderboard are Clarence Center’s Cat Peters and Lewiston’s Maren Cippola, who both fired a 76 in Wednesday’s first round.

In just its second year of existence, the women’s version of the prestigious amateur tournament is beginning to pull in some quality players – a trend tournament director Brian Oakley expects to continue.

“I think the Porter Cup name speaks for itself. The connotation of having a women’s Porter Cup has got a lot of the golf coaches excited, that there’s a ladies’ event that they could be in the ground floor on,” said Oakley.

Second round play begins Thursday.
