Emma Lavy shot a three over 75 and it tied for 34th after the first round. Lavy opened with back-to-back bogeys on the second and third holes but rallied with a birdie on the fifth to move to one-over. She struggled with a couple more bogeys before turning plus-three. The Fayetteville, Ark., native eventually found herself at plus-five before recovering with birdies on the 15th and 17th holes to finish at three-over for the round. Sophomore-to-be Plasencia is tied for 77th overall after a first round 78. Plasencia turned after the first nine at three-over and posted her only birdie of the round with a three on the par four 11th hole.
