Lions lead after opening round at Northeastern State Classic – LINK

 

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – The Texas A&M University-Commerce women’s golf team leads after 18 holes at the 19th Annual Northeastern State Women’s Golf Classic at Cherokee Springs Golf Course. The new-look lineup for the Lions is competing in its first event of the 2017-18 season.

 

The Lions shot 305 in the season’s opening round and are on top of a tightly-packed team leaderboard. Only five strokes separate first through sixth places. Behind A&M-Commerce’s 305 are Southwestern Oklahoma State (306), Missouri Western State (307), host Northeastern State (308), Henderson State (309), and Oklahoma Christian (310).

 

Anya Anders started her senior season off with a bang, carding two birdies on the back nine on the way to a 2-over par 74. She sits in a tie for fourth place on the leaderboard.

 

Freshman Paige Lee Garris is in 10th place with a 4-over par 76. She carded three birdies in her first collegiate round. She was followed closely by fellow newcomer Lauren Leslie, who sits in 14th with a 5-over 77 in her first round as a Lion. Leslie closed her round strong with three birdies and no bogeys in her final eight holes.

 

Christen Simons had two birdies in her first collegiate round on the way to a 6-over par 78 to sit in 21st, and Sophie-Charlott Hempel shot a 9-over par 81 and is in 37th after her opening collegiate round.

 

The Lions will look to close out the tournament on top with Tuesday’s final round. A&M-Commerce golfers start at 9:30 a.m.
