May 17, 2005
Freshman Dewi-Claire Schreefel shot a 1-under-par 70 to lead the USC women's golf team, the 2003 NCAA champions, into first place after the first day of the 2005 NCAA Women's Golf Championships at Sunriver (Ore.) Resort on Tuesday (May 17).
USC, one of the final teams to start the day, shot a combined 287 (+3) to secure a one-shot lead over UCLA (+4). Auburn came in at +6 while three other teams were within five shots of the Women of Troy.
The Women of Troy were the only team to have no player shoot higher than three over.
Schreefel, starting on hole 10, had an especially eventful first nine holes, posting three birdies and three bogeys for a par 36. She then had two birdies to one bogey on the final nine to secure second-place overall. Pepperdine's Carolina Llano is two under par.
Sophomores Catalina Marin and Veronica Felibert, who along with juniors Irene Cho and Tanya Dergal shot par or better on the first nine holes, both finished at one over for the rounds. Cho was two over and Dergal was three over.
Felibert and Marin are both tied for 12th while Cho is tied for 21st and Dergal is tied for 35th.
After starting in the mid-afternoon on Tuesday, USC's players will all begin by 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday. The tournament continues Wednesday through Friday (May 18-20).
