Women's Golf In Third After First Day of NCAA Regional


After the first round of the NCAA Division II Women's Golf Super Regionals from the par 72 Missouri Bluffs Golf Club in St. Charles, Mo., the Augustana Vikings sit in second place Monday afternoon.

Though Uriell shot the best round of the tournament, her teammates tore up the course as well, with Dylan Kim, Maria Fassi and Kaylee Benton all under par and in second, third and fourth place behind leader Maddie Szeryk of Texas A&M. The Aggies, playing in an NCAA Regional for the 18th straight season, look finish in the top six of the three-day, 54-hole tournament to earn a berth to the NCAA Championship. While only the top four scores counted, Siyun Liu, Mai Dechathipat and Monica Schumacher all made par in the first group in the playoff while Emilia Migliaccio made par in the second. At the turn, she was four-over and shot for par on the 10th and 11th holes before bogey on 13 took her to 5-over.

Right now, both Kendra Dalton and Rose Huang of BYU have a good shot to finish among those three best.

The three individuals moving on to the NCAA Championships are Nicole Schroeder (Oregon State), Gabby Curtis (Wisconsin) and Erin Harper (Indiana).

The NCAA Championship field includes 72 teams.

The Tigers shot 291 (+3) as a team today and are at 583 (+7) for the tournament and in eighth place. DBU's Brin Fariss and Addison Mitchell, and West Texas A&M's Jelina Fernando lead all 66 golfers. Farah had two birdies on the round, one coming on each side. "We just have to keep picking targets, hit them and then hit them again". A trio of players are tied for third with a score of 69. Toledo's Pinyada Kuvanun and Indiana's Erin Harper pulled ahead of Basso by four and seven shots respectively.

"Jay (Goble) stayed with me all 18 holes to make sure that I was OK and to focus on every shot", Diane Baillieux said.

Her 1-over on the first nine holes of the course was her best performance of the week on the front nine.

"I didn't even know that. You can do it!' And finally, I did it".
