Cecilia Jeon shot 243 over the two-day tournament and finished tied for 53rd.

"This was a great season opener for us and having back-to-back rounds in the 300s is something we didn't do much last season," said head coach Carol Blackmar "Ryann had a good start for us as did Lindsay and Katie, but I liked what we did as a team in our first tournament."

Next up for the Islanders women's golf team is a trip to Broken Arrow, Okla. for the ORU Shootout. The tournament is hosted by Oral Roberts and will take place on October 4th and 5th.
