AUGUSTA, Ga. - Coastal Carolina's women's golfers combined to shoot a 304 (+16), tying for fifth on the leaderboard after the first round of the annual Augusta State-hosted Insperity Lady Jaguar Intercollegiate contested at the par-72, 6,214-yard Forest Hills Golf Club.

Coastal Carolina has three players inside the top 30 of the 99 competitor field with senior Jessica Alexander's 1-over 73 leading the charge. Alexander is tied for fifth overall after carding a trio of birdies on her opening round of play. Brittany Henderson, who posted a 4-over 76, stands tied for 21st. Freshman Lena Schaeffner is tied for 26th individually. Schaeffner posted four birdies on the round, the fifth most by any competitor.

Sophomore Frida Castillo, Coastal's top finisher at last week's Purdue Mount Vintage Invitational, turned in a 6-over 78. Marissa Hinchman rounded out the Chanticleer contingent with an 8-over 80.

Ninth-ranked Vanderbilt is atop the team leaderboard with a 2-over 290. Purdue, ranked 16th nationally, sits second with a 295 (+7) followed by #22 Texas (299, +11) and #26 Notre Dame (303, +15). The Chanticleers and East Tennessee State round out the top five in the team standings with matching 304 (+16) tallies.

Alexander backed up a double-bogey on the third hole with birdies on five and nine to make the turn at even-par. Bogeys on 14 and 16 put her back to 2-over; however, she closed her round with a birdie on the par-4 18th hole en route to her 73. Henderson finished her round with two birdies and 10 pars. Both of her birdies came on long par-5s. Schaeffner had an up and down, posting four birdies, but also suffered a trio of double-bogeys.

The tournament will resume with 18 holes Saturday and conclude with a final 18 holes on Sunday.
