Freshman Bernadette stepped to the front in the opening round of the NAIA Women’s Golf Championships being played on the Wilderness Ridge Golf Club.

The Eagles totaled 301 as a team. Lubbock Christian stands at 304. Cal State San Marcos and Oklahoma City sits in third after registering a 310 (+22). Defending national champions, British Columbia round out the top five on the team leader board, as they posted a first round score of 312 (+24).

Lee stands in a tie for the 10th spot with the University of the Cumberlands after totaling a 317 (+29)

Bernadette came through big for us today,” coach John Maupin. “She really stepped up at a time when we needed her. I also thought Sloane (Skinner) played a very solid round of golf.”
Skinner is tied for 20th after a 5-over 77. Madison Alexander tallied an 82. Courtney Shelton struggled with an 83, while Chelsea Rakestraw came in at 87.

“There is a pretty big logjam on the leader board and we are in the thick of things,” said Maupin. “Again, it's a long week (tournament) with a lot of golf left, so we just need to try to get better each day. We are going to get a good night’s rest and be ready to go on Wednesday morning."
