Women's Golf Finishes Record Day at the Rome News-Tribune Invitational

ROME, Ga. --- Ali Hamil helped Huntingdon College's women's golf team shoot a round-one school-record low 330, after firing a Huntingdon individual-best one-over par, 73, which currently puts her tied for 2nd place in the field of 94 golfers. The Lady Hawks fell just outside of the top-5 trailing Birmingham-Southern College by one-stroke after the first round of the Rome News-Tribune Invitational hosted by Berry College.

Huntingdon's Ali Hamil sits four-strokes behind the current individual leader Greta Lange of Shorter University, with a school-record low one-over par, 73, in the opening round. Lange shot an individual-best on day one with a 3-under par, 69.

Shorter leads the 11-team field after shooting a 298 on Monday followed by Lee University's 304. The University of West Georgia landed in the third spot after carding a team-total 318, while the University of Cumberlands shot a 320 in fourth place. Birmingham-Southern rounded out the top-5 with a one-stroke advantage over the Lady Hawks with a 329 total.

Huntingdon's Meg McGuire finished tied for 23rd with a day-one 10-over par, 82, while Saem Hur posted a 14-over, 86, in 38th place. Kaitlin Rozof completed the opening round tied for 41st place with a 89, followed by Huntingdon's Alex Foster's 54th place finish with a 96.

The Lady Hawks look to climb up the leader board on Tuesday, Mar. 8, for the final round of the Rome News-Tribune Invitational at Coosa Country Club in Rome, Ga.
