BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Middle Tennessee women's golf team stands in fourth place following the first round of the 2002 Southern Shootout. The Lady Raiders registered a total score of 353 at the Greystone Golf Club Monday afternoon.

UAB is in the lead with a 335, while Sun Belt Conference foe South Alabama is second after firing a 340. The final round will be played Tuesday morning with the Lady Raiders teeing off at 9:30 AM.

Tough course conditions caused scores to elevate on Monday, as the slick Founders course greens played in the same condition as when Senior PGA Tour players visit Greystone for the Bruno's Memorial Classic.

"This is definitely the toughest course we have played on this year," said head coach Rachael Moore. "I am pretty pleased to be in fourth place at this time."

Sophomore Tamara Munsch, who paced the Lady Raiders, finished the day with a score of 85 to stand in a tie for sixth place overall with Troy State's Tracy Tidwell and Jackson State's Akita Taylor.

The standings in the 13-team field were as follows: UAB (335), South Alabama (340), Troy State (342), Middle Tennessee (353), Samford (357), Belmont (367), Tennessee Tech (367), Birmingham-Southern (368), Jackson State (369), Gardner-Webb (374), Nicholls State (380), Montevallo (382) and Lipscomb (395).
