Mercyhurst University opened in first with 322 but finished a distant second in the fall 2019-20 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Championship at Hershey Country Club's East course in Hershey, Pa. Gannon placed all five players in the top 10 and rolled to a 24-shot win over the runner-up Lakers. West Chester was 25 shots further back in third as the difficulty of the course stretched out the field. The East course was par 71, measured 5,809 yards and produced an 18-hole scoring average of 90.8 strokes in tough conditions. Only 13 rounds under 80 were recorded during the tournament.
Kymberly Henry (78-78-82=238) and Abigail Vietmeier (81-75-86=242) finished in the top five for the Lakers, and Bridget Merten (80-86-85=251) tied or 10th.
Mercyhurst finished third in fall 2018-19 and fall 2017-18 at the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Championship. The Lakers were fifth in 2016, seventh in 2015, fourth in 2014, tied for fourth in 2013, tied for third in 2012, took fourth in 2011, sixth in 2010 and fourth in 2009.
