Women's Golf Stands Ninth After Day One of SAC Championships

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. -- Catawba shot an opening round 322 and sits in ninth place among the 11 teams at the South Atlantic Conference Women’s Golf Championships.  The 54-hole, three-day tournament is being held at the 5,910-yard, par-72 Link Hills Country Club. 

Madison Moore (Westfield, N.C./E. Surry) led Catawba on day one with a 77.  The sophomore battled back from a double bogey on her opening hole to post a five-over-par total.  Over her final 17 holes, Moore had four bogeys with a dozen pars and a birdie on the par-5 10th.

Jaime Cassell (Charlotte, N.C./Cox Mill) followed with an 80 that saw her also birdie the 10th to go along with nine pars.  Victoria Hedrick (Lexington, N.C./C. Davidson) had a nice round derailed by a quadruple bogey on the par-5 15th.  She rebound with three pars to end her round to shoot an 81.

Hedrick and Kaley Barts (Apex, N.C./Apex) each notched two birdies in the opening round.  Hedrick had birdies on the 10th and the par-4 seventh, while Barts had birdies on the par-5 13th and the par-3 16th.

Lise Malherbe, of Lincoln Memorial, holds the first-round lead after an opening with a 71.  She was the only player to break par with five golfers sitting two shots back.  Tusculum leads the team race after a 298, leading Lincoln Memorial by two shots and Queens by four.
