The Commodores ended the first day of play at the NCAA Championship with an eight-over par, 296, which is currently fifth among teams that have finished their rounds.
VU was led by freshman Anna Leigh Keith, who posted a one-under par, 71. The Moultrie, Ga., native finished with four birdies in her last five holes, and is currently in a tie for sixth in the individual rankings. Her 71 tied a season-best - her previous 71 came in the Bryan National Collegiate in Greensboro, N.C., on April 4, which was also her best finish of the season (T-10).
Megan Grehan ended her round with a two-over par, 74, Marina Alex with a three-over par, 75, Brooke Goodwin with a four-over par, 76, and Lauren Stratton finished with a six-over par, 78.
More to come later, including video interviews with head coach Greg Allen and top finisher Anna Leigh Keith, along with an official recap on vucommodores.com when everyone finishes their round on Tuesday.
