Campbell leads after first round of the JU Classic
Despite blustery conditions that created just six scores under 80, Campbell was able to post three of those scores en route to an opening round 310 to lead after the first day of the 2009 JU Classic.

The Camels were led by a two-over par 74 from Sarah Bejgrowicz on the par-72 layout at Hidden Hills Country Club to lead the nine-team competition.

Bejgrowicz is tied for the individual title with Praewnapa Phol-uayporn from Florida Atlantic, who also posted a two-over par 74.

The winds were blowing up to 20 miles per hour for most of the day, raising the average score for the day to 85.2.

Campbell has three players in the top five, with Mary Mattson in third after a five-over par 77 and Sandra Angulo in fourth with a six-over par 78.

The Camels hold a 17-shot lead over Stetson and a 19-shot lead over Troy and Florida Gulf Coast entering the final round.

The JU women’s team posted a round of 332 to tie for fifth and sit just five shots out of second place.

Senior Alexandra Andersen led the Dolphins with a seven-over par 79 to tie fifth individually. Freshman Morgan Jackson carded an eight-over par, 80, to tie for seventh.

Jessica Williams carded an 11-over par 82 to tie for 15th and Paige Gifford rounded out the team score with a 91 to tie for 39th. Alison Cornell shot a 94 to sit in 46th entering the final round.

The final round begins at 8:30 a.m., with teams going off both No. 1 and 10 tees. The Dolphins will be teeing off at 8:30 on No. 1 with Florida Atlantic and Troy.
