@RazorbackWGF First, Plasencia Tied For Third

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — More than 24 hours after the scheduled start time, the fourth-ranked University of Arkansas women’s golf team has completed the first round of the 2014 SEC Championship and is in the clubhouse with the lead. Sophomore Regina Plasencia leads Arkansas and is tied for third overall helping the Razorbacks to a rain-filled 294 in round one. Play was delayed more than four hours Friday when heavy rains interrupted play. Arkansas got on the course only to be pulled off as darkness fell, so the Razorbacks, Alabama and South Carolina had to finish their first round Saturday morning. Plasencia, who returned to the course on the 16th hole, finished with an even par 72 on the Founder’s Course at Greystone Golf and Country Club. Teammates sophomore Gabriela Lopez and senior Emily Tubert both finished one-over with 73 and are tied for sixth. Senior Emma Lavy shot 76 and is tied for 30th and freshman Summar Roachell carded a 79 and is in the clubhouse tied for 45th in her first SEC Championship. INSIDE THE ROPES * Arkansas had 11 birdies in the first round * Three Razorbacks are in the top 10 individual standings * Arkansas is the top-ranked team in the tournament and leads after the first round * Gabriela Lopez played the last three holes Saturday morning two-under * Regina Plasencia and Summar Roachell played the last three holes even * Arkansas played the back nine, plus-3 * Arkansas was re-paired with LSU and Auburn for the second round and is scheduled to tee off beginning at 11:40 a.m. For more information on Arkansas women’s golf, follow @RazorbackWGolf on Twitter.
