Wildcats in Seventh after Round One

NORMAN Okla. - The Kansas State women's golf team sits in seventh place after the first round of the Schooner Fall Classic on Saturday at the par-71, 5,901-yard Belmar Golf Course. The Wildcats carded a 10-over par 294 over the first 18 holes.

“We would have liked to have gotten a little more out of today’s round,” K-State head coach Kristi Knight said. “We were not able to put four scores together. Madison (Talley) and Connie (Jaffrey) played solid all day, but there is a lot of golf left.”

Talley and Jaffrey led the way by carding a 1-under par 70 and sits in a tie for 10th at the end of round one. Senior Scotland Preston is tied for 35th after carding a 4-over par 75. Junior Katherine Gravel-Coursol finished the day at 8-over par 79 and a tie for 51st, while junior Paige Nelson completed play on Saturday in a tie for 62nd at 11-over par 82.
