Women's Golf Team in First After Day One at Marietta

MARIETTA, (Ohio) -- West Virginia Wesleyan's women's golf team grabbed the day one lead at the Ohio Valley University Women's Golf Classic.

Playing in an eight-team field at the Marietta Country Club, Coach J.D. Lamm's squad put three players in the top ten, and posted a four-player score of 346 on the par-72 layout.

"We are playing well and I am proud of the girls coming out of this round with the lead...but we have several things we need to work on going into tomorrow," Lamm said. "We still left some key shots out there on the course today that could have brought the score down a few strokes. Our goal tomorrow is to get that total down in the 320's."

Marietta's Jackie Cunningham went into the clubhouse with the individual lead with a 78 while Fairmont State's Sydney Brill was second with an 82.

Junior Becca Davis led the Lady Bobcat effort, shooting an 83 to put herself in third place individually.

Freshman Beverly Toothman is fifth with an 85, sophomore Sandra Brink was seventh with an 87, and freshman Kylie Day is sitting in 14th with a day one 91.  There are 42 players in the tournament field.

Host school Ohio Valley is seven strokes back at 353, with Alderson-Broaddus still in the hunt in third at 358.

Final round play tees off Monday at 9 a.m.
