From NYU Athletics
The New York University women's golf team has opened its 2019 spring schedule with competition at the University Athletic Association (UAA) Championship, which is being held Saturday and Sunday, March 9-10, at the 5,817-yard, par-72 Conservatory Course at the Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, FL.
The Violets, who are currently ranked #7 in the nation by the Women's Collegiate Golf Association (WGCA), are competing against the #11 Washington University in St. Louis Bears and the #15 Carnegie Mellon University Tartans.
After round one of the two-day tournament, the Violets lead with a total score of 316. The Bears (320) and Tartans (321) follow close behind in second and third place, respectively.
Two NYU players, Arisa Kimura and Arshia Mahant shot team-lows 78 for the Violets. They are among four golfers tied for second place behind Carnegie Mellon's Grace Chen (73).
Also competing for NYU is Patty Treevichaphan (79), Jessica Wu (81) and Jenni Bluetling (82).
"It was a very competitive day out on the course today," said Head Coach Brad Johnson. "It's good to be in front, but we know anyone can still win this thing. We're going to have to play at our best tomorrow if we want to hold on to the lead."
