Lady Jags Open In Eighth Place

LEXINGTON, KY. -- Augusta State posted a 22-over 310 Friday afternoon in a soggy first round of the Bettie Lou Evans Fall Invitational at the University Club of Kentucky.

The tournament marks the season opener for the Lady Jaguars, who are beginning their second season under head coach Kevin McPherson.

ASU freshman Natalie Wille, playing her first collegiate round, led the Lady Jags with a four-over 76 and is tied for 20th. Sophomore Julie Stalbro is tied for 28th after a five-over 77 while seniors Sarah Mooney and Tamara Luccioli signed for 78 and 79 and are 41st and 48th, respectively. Freshman Jordyn Hage, making her collegiate debut along with Wille, managed an 85 and is 72nd.

ASU is in eighth place, seven shots back of fifth-place Chattanooga. Ninth-ranked Florida State combined for a 10-over 298 and grabbed a three-shot lead over Central Florida and Coastal Carolina. Texas State is in fourth place and four shots off the Lady Seminoles' pace.

FSU's Macarena Silva turned in the day's lone sub-par round – a two-under 70 – and is two shots clear of a trio that includes Chattanooga's Emma de Groot, Texas State's Valdis Jonsdottir and Central Florida's Victoria Tomko.
