"For a freshman to be in the overall lead is a great accomplishment," head coach Rachael Moore said. "She played a smart round today and really hit the ball well. I like the way she came into this tournament and stepped up her play because we need her to do that. The real test now is staying on top."
As a team, the Lady Raiders carded a 314 to stand in third place which is just two shot back of second place Oral Roberts. Host Jacksonville State leads the tournament with a 304.
Tamara Munsch-Akers is tied for fifth overall with a 77, while junior Kristin Lynch is tied for 18th after recording an 82. Grace Holmes is tied for 20th with an 83, while freshman Jenny Kim is tied for 23rd with an 84.
Junior Kemmerlee Pennington played as an individual and shot a career-best 78 to tie for 10th overall.
