Sorrento, FL – After a wind-swept opening round, Austin Peay State University women’s golf will have ground to make up after opening the Spring Citrus Challenge, hosted by Morehead State, with a 323.
Taylor’s opening-round 75 put her in a tie for 12th, four shots behind the leaders and tied for fourth among Ohio Valley Conference competitors.
Ashton was two shots behind her, tied for 21st with a 77—she now has three straight rounds in the 70s for the first time since opening the fall campaign with seven sub-80 rounds in a row.
“I’m proud of the way Taylor and Ashton fought today,” said head coach Sara Robson. “They did a good job controlling their shots in the wind.”
In 13th after one round, the Govs look to make up eight shots and bring into the top-10 on Monday.
“We struggled on the greens today,” Robson said. “To move up tomorrow, we need to execute our shots and putt better.”
Action continues from RedTail Golf Course, 7:30am CT, Monday.
