SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (April 10) – Ebba Moberg and the RiverHawks are tied for first place after one round of the Central Region Preview on Monday.
Northeastern State shot a 309 as a group and is tied with Henderson State for the overall tournament lead. Moberg averaged a three-under on par-5s and fielded four birdies for her even, 72 score. Baylee Price surged late in the round with an eagle on 18 for a 76, good for a 10th place tie.
“It wasn’t pretty, but we are leading arguably the biggest and most significant tournament of the year,” said head coach Scott Varner. “Ebba (Moberg) was rock solid and hit it great today, she was tough as nails mentally.”
“Very windy conditions out there and there were tough pins as well but we are in great position to get a W. We are going to need more help and toughness out of our other three.”
The RiverHawks are playing against a large field of 21 teams within the Central Region.
Play resumes on Tuesday with the final round slated for 8:30 a.m.
Sydney Roberts fired a 1-over-par 73 to put Central Oklahoma in third place after the first round.
The Bronchos finished with a 315 total and trail co-leaders Northeastern State and Henderson State by six shots heading into Tuesday’s final round. Central Missouri and Southwestern Oklahoma are tied for fourth in the 16-team tourney at 316.
Roberts is third in the individual standings with her 73, while Marla Souvannasing is tied for 12 after an opening 77. The Bronchos also got an 80 from Makena Mucciaccio, while Allyson Wilcox shot 85 and Anna Pool 86.
“Sydney was really steady all day and had a great round,” head coach Michael Bond said. “We had some big scores on a few holes and that really hurt us, but we’re still in the mix and just need to play well tomorrow.”
Roberts made a tournament-high 15 pars in the round, while Souvannasing had four birdies in her up-and-down 77.
