Flames Sit in Eighth Place after Day One of Horizon League Championship|
April 27, 2012
"We're a little disappointed in where we are after day one, but we have 36 holes remaining to move up the scoreboard," said head women's golf coach Carol Rhoades. "The course played very difficult today, and our inexperience in this setting played a role in our team score. I'm confident we'll turn things around and play much better golf this weekend."
UIC shot 378 as a team, and enters day two of the Championship in eighth-place, 27 strokes behind seventh-place Valparaiso (351). Defending champion Butler is in first-place, with an opening round team score of 331. The Bulldogs' Clare Cornelius and Detroit's Lindsay Lammers both shot 79, and shared first-place individual honors after Friday's 18-hole round.
The second round, from the El Campeón course at Mission Inn Resort, will get underway Saturday morning.
