PALOS VERDES, Calif. - Oklahoma State's women's golf team opened play on Monday at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge with a 309 total to stand in a tie for 13th place at Palos Verdes Golf Club.
The Cowgirls' 25-over score tied them with Washington and Michigan State at the par-71, 6017-yard layout. UCLA posted 288 to stand two shots clear of Duke and Florida.
Duke's Alejandra Cangrejo was the lone player in the field to break par, posting a 1-under 70 to stand a shot clear of a group of players that includes OSU's Kelsey Vines.
Coming off a victory last week at the Hurricane Invitational, Vines was one of seven players to card an even-par score on the day. The senior started her round on the back nine and stood at even par through five holes before logging birdies at the 15th and 16th to turn at 2-under 34. Her front nine included a pair of bogeys to move her back to even.
Junior Joesphine Janson and sophomore Courtney Ferguson each posted 79s to stand in a tie for 60th place.
Freshman Julie Yang made her Cowgirl debut with an 80 to come in tied for 69th place, while junior Jayde Panos' 82 tied her for 78th place.
The Cowgirls will begin their second round tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. (PST) and will be grouped with Washington and Michigan State.
