Tennessee Grabs First-Round Lead at Fall Preview

Sept. 24, 2001

Auburn, WA - Tennessee posted an opening round score of 293 to take the lead after the opening round at the NCAA Fall Preview at Washington National Golf Club. Ohio State is one shot back behind the Lady Vols with a score of 294. Washington is tied for 16th with a score of 307.

Duke sophomore Virada Nirapathpongporn and Tennesee senior Young-A Yang both shot 2-under 70 to share the first-rounjd lead. Nirapathpongporn is the defending NCAA and Eastern Regional champion. Only three other players Lorena Ochoa of Arizona, Lindsay Knowlton from Ohio State and Emily Bastel from Michigan State turned in rounds of 71.

Washington is tied for 16-place after turning in a first-round score of 307. The Huskies were paced by a pair of 2-over scores of 74 by senior Kelli Kamimura and freshman Paige Mackenzie. Edmonds native Jimin Kang, a sophomore at Arizona State, also shot 74.

Kamimura shot par on 17 holes with bogeys on the par-5 No. 1 and No. 17 holes.

'It is really frustrating because you go into the par fives thinking that you are going to birdie them,' Kamimura said. 'Overall, I thought I played pretty well. I hit the ball well, I just needed to make a few more putts. I didn't putt bad today, I just couldn't make anything outside of six feet.'

Mackenzie, playing in her first collegiate tournament, finished strong with a pair of birdies down the stretch.

'I'm more relieved than anything,' Mackenzie said following her round. 'I was nervous and I didn't get off to a good start. I was really excited to birdie 16 and 17 and I almost got one on 18. It was a great way to end the day. I can't wait to get back out here for the next round.'

Washington's other scores included a 79 by Bianca Clark and 80s by Michelle Grafos and Lindsay Morgan. Louise Friberg, playing as an unattached player, shot 79.

The second round of play will begin at 8 a.m. on Tuesday. The final round, featuring a shotgun start, will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
