TUCSON, Ariz. - Wet and windy conditions shortened play on day one of the 26th Annual Arizona Wildcat Invitational at Arizona to just 18 holes and Washington sits in 16th place after the first round.

The field was scheduled to play 36 holes on Monday and 18 holes in the final round on Tuesday. Those plans were scrapped after the weather did not cooperate. The tournament will now be just two rounds with the conclusion on Tuesday.

Washington is last among the 16-team field but is just eight strokes away from the top ten. Only three of the 93 competitors finished the round under par.

Sadena Parks and Karinn Dickinson led the way for the Dawgs, each shooting 7-over 78. The duo is in a pack of 10 players tied for 47th.

Darcie Richmond led the Huskies with three birdies on the day, but sits at 8-over for the round after having to count three double-bogeys on her scorecard.

Junior Anya Alvarez had a stellar start and was 1-under after seven holes, but fell victim to the worsening conditions. Her round snowballed downhill after a bogey and triple-bogey on her eighth and ninth hole and she was never able to steady herself. She ended the day at +9.

Senior Molly Aronnson had to count a 10 on a par-four hole and ended her round at 12-over par.

Pac-10 Conference teams Arizona State, Stanford and Arizona hold the top three spots, respectively, after the first round of the 26th Annual Wildcat Invitational hosted by the University of Arizona, Monday afternoon at the Arizona National Golf Club.

16. Washington +31 (315)

T47. Karinn Dickinson, +7 (78)
T47. Sadena Parks, +7 (78)
T57. Darcie Richmond, +8 (79)
