Dixie State’s women’s golf team stands in 14th place overall after the first round of play at the 2018 California Baptist Lancer Joust played Monday at the par-72 Goose Creek Golf Club.
The Trailblazers carded a team score of 325 (+37), 31 shots off the pace set by the host Lancers (294, +6), who own a seven-stroke lead on second-place Cal State San Marcos (301, +13) and are 12 shots clear of Academy of Art (306, +18).
Junior Katie Ford and freshman Kaitlynn Deeble paced the Trailblazers on day one with matching 7-over 79s to join seven others in t-36th after their opening loops, while sophomore Ashley Fernandez penciled in a team-high two birdies on her way to a 10-over 82 to finish in a group of eight golfers tied for 59th. Freshman Cailyn Cardall is tied for 79th place after firing a 13-over 85, and junior Amalia Negrette follows in t-84th at 14-over 86.
Dixie State looks to rebound in Tuesday’s final round, which begins at 8 a.m. PT.
