Lewis leads Lady’Backs on the West Coast

Jump tofirst round results PALO ALTO, Calif. – University of Arkansas junior Stacy Lewis played the Stanford Golf Course even and is tied for 12th after the first round of the Peg Barnard Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif., Friday. Lewis and the 26th-ranked Lady’Backs started the day on the 10th hole and struggled with a first day 21-over 305 and are tied for 12th overall. “We talked a lot about being stingy with our shots today,” said Arkansas head coach Kelley Hester. “But we still made some mental mistakes that I’d like to see us eliminate. We’re making youthful mistakes and we are a young team but I think we can do better.” In addition to Lewis’ even 71, Arkansas counted a 77 from sophomore Lucy Nunn, a 78 from junior Ashley Medders and a 79 from freshman Alex Schulte. Freshman Corinna Rees carded an 80. Fifth-ranked Arizona leads the field with a seven under 277 on the par 71, 5,985-yard course. Top-ranked Georgia is second with an even par 284 followed by No. 9 Stanford with 2 86, No. 7 Vanderbilt at 288 and No. 2 Duke rounds out the top five with a 292. Play continues through Sunday.
