FRISCO, Texas – Cameron led for a short while in round one of the Lone Star Conference Championship but they are in the hunt, four strokes back of the lead on Monday. Katie Johnston guided the Aggies with a two-under, 70 which was her career best and is one stroke back of the individual lead.
Round One Results
Cameron carded a 301 as a group which was their lowest round of the season after knocking in 10 birdies which was second best in the seven team field, half of which came from Johnston.
"We came out really strong and we gave ourselves a chance after today," said head coach Rick Goodwin. "The three schools in front of us are all ranked inside the top-25 and to beat one of those schools who will make regionals would be nice way to end the season.
Katie (Johnston) gave us a career day with five birdies and Erin (Hess) also had a career round as a freshman. "Right now there isn’t much between the top-5 on the leader board right now which will make tomorrow exciting for a lot of people including ourselves."
Erin Hess had CU’s second best score which was a 75 and was also a career best for the freshman, she is tied for 12th place overall. Jaqueline Strickland hovered around even for the majority of the day but a pair of bogeys and a double set up for a 76 and she landed in 14th place.
Alexis Thompson is in 23rd place with an 80 and Candice Swartz landed in in the number-34 spot with an 87.
Midwestern State and West Texas A&M are tied for the lead after carding a 297, Tarleton State is in third with a 300, and Angelo State is one stroke back of the Aggies in fifth.
Cameron will tee-off starting at 8:40 a.m. on Tuesday with Angelo State for the final round.
