BRASELTON, Ga. – Jacksonville University women's golf wrapped the first round of the ASUN Championship in third, just seven strokes back of the lead.
JU shot a 314 at difficult conditions at Chataeu Elan Golf Course on Sunday.
"We are in a solid spot going into the next two rounds," said Head Coach Jennifer Borocz.
The Dolphins were led by First Team All-ASUN selection Amanda Detmer, whose 2-over 75 was good enough to be tied for the lead after day one. She was consistent all day, at one point sinking six straight pars from hole four through nine. She finished the day tied for the second most pars made with 14.
Michelle Forsland, named to the All-ASUN Second Team Saturday, is 11th after shooting a 6-over 79, Maria Brunzell and Paula Trejo Lerdo are one stroke back of their teammate and tied for 12th. Hannah Berman shot a day one 83 and is tied for 20th.
Jacksonville was the best team on Par-4s on the day, finishing four strokes better than the next team. JU also tied for the lead in birdies made with 10, led by Berman's field-best five. Detmer was the team's lowest scorer on Par-3s (1-under) and Par-4s (2-over).
"We need some better play all around to move up the leaderboard," said Borocz.
Weather conditions deteriorated as the day went on, and heavy rain is in the forecast through the night and continuing into the morning. Tomorrow mornings start is delayed until noon at the earliest. Live scoring is available through Golfstat.
