Golf Team Tied for 13th after Leading First Round at Circling Raven Collegiate

WORLEY, Idaho – The Northern Arizona women's golf team had an up-and-down first two rounds of the Circling Raven Collegiate Monday in the first action of the season. The Lumberjacks posted a 305 team score in the first round, leading the tournament by two strokes after 18 holes. But the second round was not as kind to the young team, resulting in a 329, the highest score of the day.

"I was very impressed with the way we played on a good golf course and posted a good score in the first round," said Head Coach Brad Bedortha. "We have to focus on the positive tomorrow."

The Lumberjacks are the two-time defending champions in the event but enter the final round 29 shots back of team leader Washington State. San Francisco is nine strokes back.

True freshman Laura Jabczenski opened her collegiate career with a one-over par 73 in the first round, finishing among the individual leaders.  The Tucson, Ariz., native shot an 80 in the second round and placed 13th after 36 holes.

Sophomore Kaitlen Parsons carded rounds of 77-80 to tie for 39th, while junior Stephanie Kim posted a 77 and 82 on the first day. Sophomore Jessie Joachim had an 81 and 87 and freshman Melissa Olson shot a 78 and 88.

The third and final round of the tournament will be contested with a shot gun start on Tuesday at 8 a.m.
