Lee Paces Mean Green At Weather-Shortened Dickson

Feb. 27, 2018

THE WOODLANDS – Junior Sol Lee led the way for the Mean Green in the opening tournament of the spring season, posting a one-over-par 73 at The Dickson Tuesday. The event, originally scheduled for 54 holes was shortened to one round due to heavy rains in the Houston area over the weekend.

The Mean Green tied for 11th place at 12-over-par, and Lee’s performance netted her a tie for 21st place individually.

“We saw signs of good things this week in Houston,” head coach Michael Akers said. “We had five double bogeys that really cost us from a better finish. We did tie some very good teams, so I’m pleased about that. The ladies did a good job of staying patient with the weather delays. We’re excited to head to The Gator for our next event and will work hard over the next 10 days to prepare.”

Lee birdied on two occasions, on No. 16 and No. 10, respectively, and parred 12 holes to open her spring season. Sophomore Lauren Cox also had a strong performance, carding a two-over-par 74. She birdied her first hole, No. 15, and had pars on 14 other holes.

The first two rounds were originally scheduled for Monday, but heavy rains soaked the course Sunday, forcing organizers to cancel day one. That pushed the first and only round to Tuesday, where the Mean Green totaled a score of 300.

North Texas returns to action at the SunTrust Gator Invitational March 10-11 from Gainesville, Florida.
