Lady Raiders tied for 4th after round one

February 29, 2004 · MT Media Relations
LAKELAND, Fla. - The Middle Tennessee women's golf team shot an opening round 320 to tie for fourth at the 2004 Lady Moc Invitational. This year's field is comprised of 23 teams.

"I am a little surprised we are in fourth place because it was a tough golf course today," head coach Rachael Moore said. "It was real windy and with 23 teams it took us about six hours to play. I think down the stretch the long day was getting to us, but we need to bounce back and make a move on Monday."

Host Florida Southern grabbed the early lead with a 304, while Rollins College is in second with a 306. Florida International is in third with a 311 and Nova Southeastern and Middle Tennessee are tied for fourth.

The Lady Raiders were led by Kristin Lynch, who carded a 76 on Sunday to tie for seventh place overall. Lynch had a 37 on the front nine before registering a 39 on the tough backside.

Jenny Kim is tied for 20th with an 80, while Tamara Munsch-Akers shot an 81 to tie for 29th.

Grace Holmes had an 83 to tie for 45th and Kemmerlee Pennington rounded out the scoring with a 91. Pennington is tied for 96th.

The Lady Raiders will play the second round on Monday morning.
