Rain delays BYU Dixie Classic

FAYETTEVILLE – The 16th-ranked University of Arkansas women’s golf team finds themselves in a holding patterned late Monday afternoon at the BYU Dixie Classic in St. George, Utah. Arkansas and the rest of the field, battled 40 mile per hour winds, a steady drizzle and, at times, downpours in a six-and-a-half hour first round, the first of two rounds scheduled for Monday. Junior Country Mahon and redshirt freshman Stacy Lewis were the first Lady’Backs off the course in the first round both carding plus-12 84s. Assistant coach Shauna Estes noted that golfers who were missing the fairways found themselves in a rocky rough that included lava rocks that were not forgiving. UNLV led after round one with a plus-32 320. Portland State carded a 330, BYU a 333, Wyoming a 349 and Weber State counted a356. They were the only teams whose scores were posted when the teams entered a rain delay. Check back soon for further updates on the Lady Razorbacks at the BYU Dixie Classic.
