JEFFERSON TWP. -- Freshman Katie Pagano (Massapequa, N.Y./Massapequa) fired the lowest round in the history of The University of Scranton women's golf program with a 78, as the Royals posted their lowest score as a team in program history (333) at Scranton Municipal Golf Club to easily get past Wilkes (452) in a dual match Saturday.

Pagano's 78 (+6), meanwhile, was the lowest round by a Royal in the history of the program by five shots, besting the previous low of 83 set by senior Brianna Stein (Basking Ridge, N.J./Ridge) and sophomore Emma Nemitz (Moscow, Pa./North Pocono) in tournaments last season.
