The Pioneers finished day one with a 7-over par 287 performance to finish one stroke behind third-place finisher Vanderbilt. East Carolina University leads the pack with a 3-over par 283 while Alabama is second with a 4-over par 284.

“Overall, I think it was a fine start for us,” said head coach Sammie Chergo. “I am so pleased with all five of our players because each of them showed up to play. I always ask our kids to play competitively and that’s what they did today. They have a great competitive spirit and their performance today has put us in a great position. I am looking forward to getting back out on the course tomorrow.”

A buddy of mine married a former college golfer. Its humiliating for him every time there's a golf tournament and she just dominates the Scrambles. She is fun to play with.
