Women's Golf In Eighth After Opening Round of John Kirk/Panther Intercollegiate
STOCKBRIDGE, GA. -- Coastal Carolina women's golf sits in eighth place after the opening round of the 2008 John Kirk/Panther Intercollegiate, Mar. 31. The two-day, 36-hole event is being played on Eagle’s Landing Country Club’s Lake Nine and New Nine (Par-73, 6,144-yards) in Stockbridge, Ga.
The field teed off on a blustery, overcast day with temperatures in the 40s following a day of rain that made conditions less than perfect. The wind in the golfer’s face on many holes made for challenging decisions and the puddles from yesterday’s rain changed layouts. Coastal still managed to claw to a 322, just two shots behind Campbell in seenth and a shot ahead of Maryland in ninth. Host Georgia State leads the tournament with a 300, eight shots better than Jacksonville State in second.
Sophomore Aruka Felgueroso leads Coastal after shooting a 4-over 77, tying her for 13th through 18 holes. Freshman Alicia Grier is next for CCU with a 6-over 79, good for a tie for 22nd, while senior Rachel Graves, playing as an individual, is tied for 30th at 7-over 80. Jessica Steward of Miami and Georgia State's Sandra Maier are tied for the individual lead at 1-under 72, one shot ahead of Anna Scott of Georgia State and Suzanne Stanley of Mississippi State. The Lady Chanticleers will play their final round, Tue., Apr. 1, starting at 9:02 a.m. off No. 10 tee with Maryland and Campbell.
