Williams College softball coach Kris Herman and former Ephs volleyball coach Fran VanDermeer, who currently is the head coach at Smith College, combined for a best-ball 76 to capture the Allied Women's Tour event at Wahconah Country Club on Monday.

For Herman, the tournament served as a warm-up act for a more strenous event -- she is spending this weekend riding in the 33rd annual Pan-Mass achusetts fundraising bicycle ride.

The Taconic Golf Club members defeated the Wyantenuck Country Club team of Carol Nichols and Sheila Labarbera by three shots. Kathy Sullivan and Jane Furey of Wyantenuck Country Club finished third with an 80.

A big field of 54 teams played in Monday's event.

The Women's Allied Championship will be held at Stockbridge Golf Club on Aug. 20.
