Vanderbilt rising junior Marina Alex is currently in second place after the first round of the 99th Women’s Eastern Golf Association Amateur in Scotch Plains, N.J., after firing a one-under par, 71, on Tuesday at the Shackamaxon Golf & Country Club.
Alex is one stroke back of the leader, Brittany Altomare of the University of Virginia, who shot a 70.
Fifty-seven golfers are in the three-day, 54-hole tournament that is being held in New Jersey for the first time since 1979.
