NORMAN, Okla. --- The No. 17-ranked Georgia women's golf team struggled to a 311 in Saturday's opening round of the Schooner Fall Classic at the Belmar Golf Club. The Bulldogs are in 14th place.
Manuela Carbajo Ré led Georgia with a 5-over 75, which also counted a 77 from Rocio Sanchez Lobato, a 78 from Harang Lee and an 81 from Sammi Lee. Mary Ellen Shuman's 83 served as the drop score.
"It was disappointing," head coach Josh Brewer said. "We had a good practice round yesterday, but we got off to a slow start. We had some loose swings that caused some big numbers. We did play better at the end, which is encouraging. We're going to be really patient. We will focus on playing two good rounds here and look to move up the leaderboard quite a bit. That is our goal. We know we're close, and we're going to get there. We need to string together some pars."
Carboja Ré is tied for 25th, Sanchez Lobato is tied for 37th, Harang Lee is tied for 48th, Sammi Lee is tied for 66th and Shuman is tied for 74th.
No. 6 Oklahoma State and No. 9 Arizona State both posted 293s to share the team lead. Oklahoma State's Jayde Pantos shot 3-under 67 and sits atop the individual field.
