30th-ranked Women's Golf Tied for Ninth at Landfall
WILMINGTON, N.C. Junior Emily Street shot a two-over-par 74 during the first day of The Landfall Tradition to lead No. 30 NC State into a tie for ninth at the Country Club of Landfall’s Jack Nicklaus Course.
Windy conditions and lightning-fast greens made it tough sledding for most of the field in the seventh annual event as a frontal system approached Coastal North Carolina.
The Wolfpack shot a team score of +34 (322) and is tied with Tulsa. Defending champion Wake Forest leads the field at +9 (297), followed by Ohio State (303) and North Carolina (305).
Street is tied for third among the field of 60 players. She was the only Wolfpack golfer to break 80 today. Wake Forest’s Natalie Sheary leads through 18 holes after a first round 72.
Street’s steady morning round featured eight straight pars, before a bogey at No. 9 to go out at +1 37. Her back nine saw two bogeys and a birdie at No. 14 for another +1 37
Freshman Meghan Chapman is tied for 40th after a round of 82.
Freshman Hunter Ross and senior Lauren Doughtie each shot 83 to tie for 44th, while sophomore Julie Saleeby shot an 84 and is tied for 50th.
Play resumes at 8:17 a.m. Saturday with the second round. Inclement weather is expected to move through the Cape Fear area most of the day before giving way to sunny skies for Sunday’s final round.
