MORGANTON, N.C.—The High Point University women’s golf team finished action on the first day of the Mimosa Hills Intercollegiate Sunday (April 2) at the Mimosa Hills Country Club (Par 72 – 6,099 yards) in Morganton, N.C.

The Panthers sit in a tie for seventh place after shooting 25-over 313. Bethune-Cookman leads at 15-over, while Gardner-Webb (+16) and host Appalachian State (+18) sit in second and third, respectively.

“Unfortunately we made quite a few errors today on top of not being able to make any putts,” HPU head coach Alexis Bennett said. “Tomorrow we need to get back to the fundamentals and just play our style of golf. We have some work to do but after a poor round today are excited to still be in the hunt.”

Junior Cayla Smith led the Purple & White with a 2-over 74 and is tied for seventh on the individual leaderboard. Freshman Samantha Vodry is tied for 16th at 5-over 77 and senior Danielle Fuss is tied for 31st at 7-over 79.

Freshman Tonrak Tasaso is tied for 51st at +11, while sophomore Devi Myers is tied for 65th at +19.

The tournament concludes Monday (April 3) with a shotgun start at 9 a.m.
