DU Golfers Lead NCAA Championships After Day 1

The 13th ranked University of Denver charged to the lead of the 2009 Women's NCAA Golf Championships by two strokes after the first day of play in Owings Mills, Maryland.

Denver (6-over 294) has a two-shot lead over #2 seed UCLA (8-over 296). North Carolina is third at 11-over, followed by Southern California (13-over). #1 seed Arizona State is 8 strokes behind DU.

One competitor noted that, "The rough is much thicker, it's playing pretty long and it's longer than we usually play. The greens are much faster. It's championship golf. Regular season is tough, but this is definitely how a championship should be set up."

DU golfer Stephanie Sherlock is tied for the lead in the individual competition at -2 under par.

Play continues tomorrow as Denver tees off beginning at 6:30 AM MT from the 10th tee. The Pioneers will once again be paired with UCLA and Arizona State.

What an amazing accomplishment for this DU team...Putting things in perspective, 300+ NCAA schools play golf, 58 play D-I hockey and 20 have ski teams.

For DU to be leading this field is amazing.
