The tourney’s first 18 holes were played earlier today, with the second 18 holes battling weather elements and early darkness during the afternoon. The 54-hole event is schedule to be completed Tuesday on the par-72, 6,178-yard layout.

The Lady Govs shot an opening-round 310 to six right in the middle of the 11-team pack. Belmont led the way with a first-round 292 while Arkansas State was second at 300. Host Murray State (302), Colombia (304), Central Arkansas (306) were ahead of the Govs.

Senior Holly Batey came in at 84. Sophomore Meghan Mueller, playing as an individual, also had an 84.

The Lady Govs were solid on both par 3 (+1) and par 5 (tourney-best +6), but it was the par 4’s that created the problems. APSU was +27 on those 12 holes.
