It probably was a better day for ducks than birdies at the first round of the NCAA Women’s South Regional in Cleveland, Tennessee.

Wet and windy weather conditions affected play, but some teams were able to slog through the conditions and hope for better weather for the next 36 holes.

Nationally 3rd ranked Limestone and 8th ranked Anderson are tied for third place after the first round at the Cleveland Country Club. The two upstate schools posted 21 over par team totals for the first day.

Tampa, the 6th ranked DII team in the country, leads Lynn the 2nd ranked team by 7 shots. The Spartans are at 9-over par after shooting a 297 total.

Kiira Riihijarvi from Tampa has the individual lead after shooting an amazing 6-under par 66 considering the conditions.

Riihijarvi and Helen Kreuzer from Lynn were the only golfers under par. Kreuzer shot a 71 to trail the leader by 5 shots going into the second round.

Anderson’s Emma Charles is in third place carding an even par round of 72.

The Trojan sophomore had three birdies a bogey and a double to be the only golfer at even par.

Limestone’s Lena Schilowsky is tied for fifth. After a difficult front-9 holes Schilowsky made three birdies on the back nine to finish at 2 over par in a fifth place tie.

Ebba Hellman from Limestone is in the top-ten after shooting a 3-over par 75.
