THE WOODLANDS, Texas - The North Texas women's golf team concluded action on day one of the Jim West Challenge from The Fazio Course at The Club at Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, Texas Sunday. The Mean Green finished day one at +36 and were paced by senior Eji Kwon, who sits in a tie for 16th place after her strong Sunday, shooting even-par through the first two rounds of play. Sophomore Sol Lee also played well, finishing four-over-par overall and shot an even-par 72 in round two to move into a tie for 39th place individually. 

"I'm happy with Eji and Sol's performance today," head coach Michael Akers said on Sunday. "We just couldn't get anything to go with their scores. The overall scores are still a vast improvement from last year. When you play competition like this, you cannot make big numbers. We had some of those and it really hurt our chance to compete. I look forward to playing tomorrow and trying to get four solid scores."

Kwon continued her strong form from earlier in the week at the Johnie Imes Invitational in Columbia, Missouri with another strong effort, posting birdies on six occasions Sunday, including a pair of birdies on the fifth hole. Lee birdied seven times over the course of the two rounds and five times in the second round. 

The Mean Green tee off with the final round Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. CT. Fans can follow all of the action with live results here, courtesy of BirdieFire.
