(AGENPARL) – MONROE (LOUISIANA), mar 20 ottobre 2020

ARLINGTON, Texas – The ULM women’s golf team has four players inside the top seven and leads the six-team field by five strokes after the first day of the UT Arlington Invitational at Texas Rangers Golf Club.

The Warhawks shot a 6-over-par 582 (285-297) to lead Houston Baptist by five strokes after the first two rounds.

“The girls had a great opening round,” ULM assistant golf coach Lana Hodge said. “The birdie putts were falling and the girls were swinging it well. The afternoon was a little bit of a struggle. They didn’t play bad; they just let a few shots get away.”

Junior Jahaanvie Walia is in third place after the first day of the tournament. Walia shot a 1-under-par 143 (69-74). Walia had a bogey-free first round, picking up birdies on the par-3 11th, par-4 16th and par-4 17th to shoot a 3-under-par 69. In her second round, she birdied back-to-back holes on the par-3 sixth and par-4 seventh to go with 13 pars for a 2-over-par 74. She is five shots off the lead of Houston Baptist’s Tiffany Nguyen at 6-under-par 138.

“Jahaanvie had a great opening round,” Hodge said. “She played steady all day.”

Sophomore Chantal Dueringer and junior Eva Bjornsdottir are part of a three-way tie for fourth place at 2-over-par 146.

Dueringer (71-75) opened the first round with back-to-back birdies on the par-5 18th and par-5 first holes. She added birdies on the par-4 14th and par-4 16th to go with 11 pars for a 1-under-par 71. In the second round, Dueringer birdied the par-4 second, par-4 10th and par-5 13th holes and earned 10 pars for a 3-over-par 75.

Bjornsdottir (71-75) picked up five birdies in her opening round, posting red numbers on the par-4 second, par-4 10th, par-3 11th, par-3 15th and par-4 16th. She had nine pars in the round to shoot 1-under-par 71. In her second round, Bjornsdottir did not pick up any birdies but knocked down 15 pars to finish at 3-over-par 75.

Freshman Line Petersen is tied for seventh at 3-over-par 147 (74-73). Petersen drained birdies on the par-4 10th, par-5 13th and par-3 15th to go with 12 pars for a first round 2-over-par 74. She opened the second round with a birdie on the par-5 18th and added birdies on the par-3 sixth, par-4 10th and par-3 11th to go with nine pars for a 1-over-par 73.

Senior Shani White shot a two-round total of 154 (79-75). She birdied the par-5 first and had 12 pars for a 7-over-par 79 in the first round. White rebounded in the second round, carding birdies on the par-5 ninth, par-5 13th and par-3 15th to go with nine pars for a 3-over-par 75.
