Wake Women's Golf Completes Day One Of NCAA Tournament
May 24, 2000
SUNRIVER, Ore. - The Wake Forest women's golf team completed its first day at the NCAA Women's Golf Championships at the Crosswater Course in Sunriver, OR today. The Demon Deacons finished with a one-round score of 308.
Freshman Maria Beautell, playing in her first NCAA Championship event, paced the Wake squad with a four-over 76 through 18 holes. Junior Marta Prieto and freshman Nuria Clau each finished with a five-over 77. Senior Kelly Kirwin, the only member of the Wake Forest team to participate in an NCAA Tournament, shot a 78, while sophomore Katie Brenny completed the first round with an 81.
"I think, overall, we played pretty well. It's a difficult course," said head coach Dianne Dailey. "We were not as sharp as we need to be to be on top. We really didn't have many long putts or birdies, but we played consistently. I'm sure we'll settle down and play well over the next three days."
Wake Forest will begin play on the second 18 tomorrow at 1:20 PST at the Sunriver Resort. Tee times for the final two days of the event will be determined based on team finishes through two rounds.
