MORGANTON, N.C. – Hilda Kristjansdottir fired an even-par round as the Elon University women’s golf team shot a nine-over 297 to sit in a second-place tie following the opening round of the Mimosa Hills Intercollegiate on Sunday, April 1.

The Highlights
Kristjansdottir began the day with back-to-back pars before posting a birdie on the par-five third hole. She would be even at the turn before going one-over through 12 holes. The senior then birdied her next two holes to move to one-under before a bogey on number 17 and a par on 18 left her with a 72.

One stroke back in a tie for fifth is Aurelia Hamm. Sitting at three over after four holes, Hamm birdied number five and was two-over at the turn. After a bogey on number 11 pushed her back to three-over, Hamm would birdie three of her final seven holes, including both number 17 and 18 to finish at one-over.

Heather Munro notched a two-over 74 and had 16 pars on the day. She is tied for 11th in the field of 90 players.

Sitting in a tie for 33rd is Adel Vadkerti. Vadkerti shot a first-round 78 and had a pair of birdies over her first 18 holes of the tournament.

Katherine Reilly’s 82 rounded out the team five. Reilly enters Monday’s final round in a tie for 67th and had one birdie.
