Deland, FL - The Florida Atlantic women's golf team entered the Atlantic Sun Championship expecting to compete, and they met expectations in the first round Monday, finishing just ten shots behind tournament leader Georgia State. The Owls shot an opening-round 316, good for fifth place out of eleven teams.
FAU was paced again by freshman June Bolme, who shot a blistering 36 on the front nine before finishing the day with a 77. Her score put her in a tie for ninth place among all individuals, but she wasn't alone at the top of the leader-board. Sophomore Sandi MacDougall finished just one stroke behind Bolme with a 78, while senior Jessica Carafiello finished just one stroke behind MacDougall with a 79. MacDougall enters the second round tied for eleventh and Carafiello is tied for 15th.
The other two FAU golfers in the competition didn't finish far off the pace either. Freshman Anna-Claire Daniels shot an 82 (t26th) and junior Kendell Kirby shot an 83 (t32nd).
The Owls resume competition Tuesday in the second round of the championship.
