ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy women's golf team sits in a tie for fifth place out of 12 teams after the opening day of the Navy Spring Invitational at the par 72, 6,085-yard Naval Academy Golf Club. Navy shot an opening-round score of 331 (+43). The tournament will conclude with 18 more holes on Sunday.

Harvard is in first place after the first round with a 310 (+22) and is followed by second-place Lehigh (316). Youngstown State (328) and Long Island (328) are tied for third place, while Navy (331) and Dartmouth (331) are tied for fifth place.

"The course played tough with fast greens so the scores were a little high today," said Navy head coach Nadia Ste-Marie. "But we are only three shots from being in third place. I'm optimistic about tomorrow. It's our home course and we know how to play it. Hopefully tomorrow we can improve our scores and move up the standings."

Harvard's Anna Zhou leads the 66-player field with a first-round score of 2-over par 74.

Navy junior Christine Walker is tied for 11th place with an opening-round score of 81 (+9). Junior Legare Augenstein is one shot behind Walker with an 82 (+10), sitting in a tie for 16th place.

Freshman Morgan Frazier is tied for 24th place with an 83 (+11), while junior Jane Moon is tied for 29th place with an 85 (+13). Freshman Abby Schroeder is tied for 47th with a 90 (+18).
