Led by freshman Alexandra Andersen's one-over par round of 73, the Jacksonville women's golf team opened its spring season in eighth place after the first round of the UCF Invitational on the par-72 Stoneybrook Golf Club.
The Dolphins shot 310 as a team to sit 16 shots back of leader Rollins College, which fired a 294 to take a six-shot lead over Florida International.
"Alexandra played really well today," said JU head coach Jim Taketa. "She got off to a good start and hopefully she can keep the momentum going into tomorrow's round."
Andersen sits just two shots out of the lead, with four players tied at one-under par 71. Rollins' Mariana DeBiase, FIU's Susan Nam, Texas Tech's Marla Troester and Mercer's Ashley Harris all carded a 71, setting up a shootout for the individual title.
To open her round, Anderson shot a one-under par 35 before giving some shots away on the back nine with a 38.
The Dolphins will tee it up again on Tuesday in the final round of the tournament.
