Dale McNamara Invitational Results/Live Scoring

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - The Coastal Carolina women's golf team opened its 2012-13 campaign with 36 holes Monday and sits in seventh place in the 15-team field at Tulsa's Dale McNamara Invitational, played on the 6,282-yard, Par 72 Golf Club of Oklahoma.

The Chanticleers carded a team score of 293-303 - 596 (+20) and were led by defending Big South Conference Individual Medalist Brittany Henderson. Perennial power Arizona State leads the event with a score of 572 (-4) followed by Florida (576) and East Carolina (584).

Henderson, who started her day on the eighth hole, was 2-over through her first nine holes; however, she would shoot event par over her next nine to record a 74 on her first time around the course. The senior would bogey two of her first nine holes of her second round, but recovered with back-to-back birdies on 15 and 16 to get back to even-par. She then played even throughout the rest of the day to turn in a 36-hole tally of 146 (+2) and tie for 15th place.

Jessica Alexander opened the day with a very impressive 4-under 68 to stand tied for third after 18 holes. The senior bogeyed her second hole of the round before shooting 5-under over her final 11 holes, including back-to-back birdies on 16 and 17. Alexander was unable to continue her sub-par ways in the second round as she stumbled to an 81. Despite the Riverview, Fla., native's uncharacteristic second round she would end the day tied for 23rd overall with a 5-over score of 149.

Marissa Hinchman shot 5-over (75-74 - 149) in her collegiate debut to sit tied for 23rd in the 75-competiotr field. The freshman struggled early but settled in thanks to a pair of birdies to close her first collegiate round at 4-over. She then benefited from three birdies over her second round en route to a 3-over 75.

Sophomore Frida Castillo and newcomer Lena Schaeffner round out Coastal's five. Castillo posted a 9-over 153 (75-78) and stands in a tie for 42nd. Schaeffner carded 76-79 - 150 (+11) in her Chanticleer debut, to tie for 50th.

Coastal will wrap the final holes of the event on Tuesday with 18 holes.
