ND Women’s Golf: Irish sit in sixth place in Florida

Michael Blasco | Tuesday, April 8, 2008

Following a rain-delayed start, No. 25 Notre Dame sits in sixth place after the conclusion of the first round at the Canes and Cardinal Classic at Don Shula’s Golf Course in Miami, Fla. The Irish shot a respectable 10-over par 298 over 18 holes, 14 strokes out of first place. Notre Dame freshman So-Hyun Park shot a one-under 71 to finish the day tied for third place. Fellow freshman Katie Conway also finished the day in the top ten, carding a one-over 73, tied for ninth overall.

No. 27 Louisville sits comfortably atop the field of 14 with a 284 team score – four-under par. Junior Cindy Lacrosse led the Cardinals by shooting a stellar five-under par 67 in the first round. Louisville leads second-place Georgia State (293) by nine strokes heading into the third round of play. Tulsa (294), South Florida (296), and the College of Charleston (297) fill out the top five, just ahead of the Irish.

Irish junior captain Lisa Maunu shot a four-over 76 on the first day, with sophomores Kristin Wetzel (78) and Annie Brophy (80) rounding out the field for Notre Dame.

Monday morning’s first round was delayed by two hours on account of heavy rain, and the second round concluded late Monday night. The third and final round begins today with a shotgun start at 8 a.m.
