Ducks Tied for Fifth After First Round of Peg Barnard

April 13, 2001

STANFORD, Calif. -- Senior All-America candidate Jerilyn White and sophomore Megan Heckeroth each shot 4-over par Friday to lead the Oregon women's golf team to a tie for fifth place after the first round of the Peg Barnard California Collegiate, which is being played at the 6,154-yard, par 72 Stanford Golf Course.

The Ducks totaled a 308 team composite and are tied with San Francisco. Oregon is just seven strokes behind tournament leader Stanford, which shot a 301 Friday. California is second at 304, while Washington and San Jose State are tied for third at 306.

'We got off to a rough start, but we came back and showed some character,' said Oregon coach Shannon Rouillard. 'I was really happy with their comeback. We're in a good position and I'm optimistic about how we are going to finish.'

White and Heckeroth are tied for 10th at 76, five strokes behind first round leader Susannah Laing of San Francisco, who carded a 71. The 76 matched the lowest round as a collegian for Heckeroth, a redshirt sophomore from Netarts, Ore., who won the 1997 3A state championship for Tillamook High School. White, a senior All-America candidate from Salem, Ore., is shooting for her sixth straight top 20 finish.

Senior Dawn Berry and junior Kathy Cho rounded out Oregon's scoring with a pair of 78s. The two are tied for 22nd.

Final round play begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
