The Lady Govs shot a 322 (as did Oakland), Sunday, with Cathey firing a 3-over 75, leaving her in third place overall.

Cathey ended APSU’s dual match against Belmont with a 71 and 148 overall.

But the senior from Hixson was APSU’s only golfer to shoot less than 80. Freshman Taylor Goodley came in at 80, followed by junior Morgan Kauffman at 83 and sophomore AnnaMichelle Moore at 84. Junior Amber Bosworth shot an 86. Freshman Ashton Goodley, playing as an individual, fired an 84.

“It was a disappointing start (to the tournament),” APSU coach Sara Robson said. “I was proud of Jessica’s round. She only hit six greens but got it up and down a lot. That’s what it took to score today.”

Southern Miss holds a 10-shot lead after the first day, shooting a 305. Youngstown State was in second at 315 with host Tennessee Tech and UNC-Greensboro tied for third at 316 in the 12-team tournament, being played on the par-71, 5,803-yard Highlands Course. The second round will be Monday, with the final round Tuesday.

“We need to him more greens and do what we need to do to score,” Robson said. “Our short game has to be better and three putts need to be minimized.”
