DALLAS, Texas – Facing perhaps the toughest field of the season the North Texas women’s golf team is in 12th place after the first day of the SMU Dallas Athletic Club Invitational. Seven teams are ranked in the top-50 and three in the top-25 but its unranked Kansas State who sits atop the leaderboard after the first 18 holes of play.
Freshman Georgina Mundy, who is coming off a win two weeks ago at UALR, is the low score after the first round for North Texas. Mundy got off to a quick start with two birdies on her first two holes but couldn’t sustain the moment as she finished with a 6-over par 78 and is tied for 31st.
McKenzie Ralston and Chaslyn Chrismer both fired scores of 80 on the day and are tied for 41st place.
Taylor Kilponen was en route to perhaps a career round on the day but was derailed on the back nine. Kilponen started her round on the 10th hole and was 2-under par through the first eight holes. However the front nine wasn’t the same case and she fired a round of 83.
Brooke Bailey couldn’t find her stroke on the day as she had just one par and shot a 100. North Texas as a team shot a 321 and is just two shots behind No. 23 Notre Dame after 18 holes. The Wildcats hold a one-stroke advantage over No. 4 Oklahoma after the first round.
