Lady Raiders in Second after Round One

April 7, 2003 · MT Media Relations

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The Middle Tennessee women's golf team conquered everything on the opening day of the 11th annual Lady Eagle Classic except the weather and host Southern Miss. The Lady Raiders stand in second place behind the Lady Eagles following one complete round at the Shadow Ridge Golf Course.

 

The weather came into play late in the first round and forced the 12 teams off the course midway through the second round. Players marked their positions and, weather permitting, will resume play Tuesday morning at 8:30.

Southern Miss' team is 16 strokes better than the Lady Raiders (311) and 17 strokes better than East Tennessee State. Samford (312) and Troy State (320) complete the top five.

 

The Lady Raiders were led by junior Tamara Munsch who fired rounds of  76-76 to stand in a tie for fifth overall. Teammate Kandace Burnett recorded a pair of 77s to tie for 10th.

 

Grace Holmes and Kristin Lynch registered a pair of 79s, while Amanda Harter completed the scoring with an opening round 80.
