HILTON HEAD, S.C. – The High Point University women’s golf team shot a combined 311 in the first round of the Low Country Intercollegiate on Saturday in Hilton Head, S.C., and sit in third out of 15 teams after the first day.

“The team got an A for effort today,” head coach Vici Pate Flesher said. “We’re still working on the decision-making process, but it’s going in a positive direction. Today’s round was better because the girls fought hard to get up and down for par and had a lot of birdie opportunities. Danielle had a really solid round today. She’s hitting the ball well and she’s starting to get some confidence again. We are looking forward to tomorrow’s round playing with Wofford and Princeton.”

Sophomore Danielle Fuss carded a two-over 74 on the day to finish in second place. Junior Casey Ward also finished in the top 10 on the day, tying for sixth with a score of 76.

Freshman Cayla Smith shot an 80 through the first 18 holes and is in a tie for 24th while senior Grier Bennett is tied for 30th with an 18-hole score of 81. Junior Tan Cheeranont rounded out the HPU five with a score of 87 to tie for 63rd.

Host Wofford and Princeton are tied for first in the team standings after shooing a combined 309 in the opening round on Saturday. SCAD-Savannah is in fourth with a score of 313 while Indiana State and Bethune-Cookman are tied for fifth with matching scores of 315.

Princeton’s Jordan Lippetz leads the race for the individual medal after shooting a one-over 73 in the first round. Lippetz holds a one-stroke lead over Fuss and a two-stroke lead over Wofford’s Nicole Chin, Indiana State’s Marissa Uradomo and Bethune-Cookman’s Jennifer Hide.
