Tigers Need to Make Move at Regional

The Auburn women's golf team is in 11th after round one at the NCAA East Regional.

Daytona Beach, Fla.--Auburn struggled on the opening day of the NCAA East Women's Golf Tournament and is tied for 11th place after the first of three rounds.

Only the top eight teams in the 24-team field advance to the NCAA Championship. Auburn's 302 round of 14-over-par is 16 shots off the pace set by Coastal Carolina. The Tigers are in a four-way tie, five shots out of eighth place.

Freshman Marta Sanz led the Tigers with a one-over-par 73 on Thursday, which is 19th individually at the LPGA International Legends Course.

"We were close today, a little slow coming out of the gate, but I thought we did a good job of re-grouping and getting back on course," said Auburn coach Kim Evans. "Despite having a rough day, we are still very much in it and we are really looking forward to tomorrow."

Junior Haley Wilson shot a 75 for the Tigers while senior Cydney Clanton and junior Patricia Sanz shot 77. Sophomore Carlie Yadloczky finished with a 78, but Auburn did not have to count her score.
