BATON ROUGE, La. – University of Arkansas senior Lucy Nunn fired an even par 72 in the first round of the LSU/Cleveland Classic in Baton Rouge, La., Friday. Nunn’s 72 helped the 26th-ranked Razorbacks to 14th-place after the first round Friday. Freshman Katy Nugant and junior Kristin Ingram were both three-over for the day with 75s, followed by sophomore Kelli Shean who was plus-four with a 76. Junior Alex Schulte rounded out the Arkansas scoring with a five-over 77. “We were a bit rusty,” said Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor. “We’ve been really good in practice but it’s just not the same as getting out in competition. This is a golf course that we can get better on as we play and I’m looking forward to some improvement over the next couple of days.” Arkansas, in its first competitive event since November, is just 14 strokes off the lead trailing opening round leader No. 12 Wake Forest who started with a four-under 284. Third-ranked Virginia is second with 285, as No. 9 LSU and No. 13 North Carolina tied for third with 287. Tulane University rounded out the top five scores with a 289. “I saw a lot of nervous golf swings out there today,” said Estes-Taylor. “We were kind of tentative. I think we’ll go out tomorrow with a lot more confidence. We got better as the day went on. Lucy finished with a pair of birdies and I think that shows we were headed in the right direction. We have a little work to do. We’re going to hit the putting range and iron out some of those early mistakes and see what we can do in the next two rounds.” Play continues Saturday and Sunday.
