USC Women's Golf Holds First Round Lead At UNLV Spring Invitational

March 15, 2005

Blustery winds that gusted past 30 miles an hour caused golfers to shoot high scores Monday in the opening round of the UNLV Spring Invitational.

No one in the field managed to shot par or better as Catalina Marin of USC posted the low round of the day with a one-over 73 to grab the early lead on the par-72, 6,009-yard course at Black Mountain Golf and Country Club.

Marin's effort in the winds help the Trojans take the opening-round lead as a team with a 306 (+18). UNLV and Arizona are both six strokes off the pace after carding a 312 (+24) over the first 18 holes.

Michigan and Pepperdine finished the opening round in the top five as the Wolverines shot a 316 (+28) and the Waves fired a 317 (+29).

USC's Irene Cho was tied for fourth at +4 (76), Veronica Felibert was tied in 10th at +5 (77), Dewi Schreefel was tied for 22nd at +8 (80), Tanya Dergal was tied for 38th at +10 (82),

Tuesday's second round is set to tee off at 8:30 a.m. (PST) on the first and 10th holes.
