TUCSON, Ariz.

The No. 11 University of Tennessee Lady Vol golf squad opened up the 2003 Arizona Wildcat Invitational in Tucson, Ariz., with a 23-over 307 to close out the first round in a sixth-place tie with New Mexico State. UT is currently 17 strokes off the leader, Arizona State, which fired a six-over 290 for the day. Individually, ASU's Erin Tone jumped out to a one-stroke lead with a three-under 68 on the par-71, 6,238-yard layout.

Freshman Golda Johansson (Lund, Sweden) paced the orange-clad contingent with a three-over 74, which was good enough to open the tournament tied for 15th-place. Team captain Jessica Shepley (Oakville, Ontario, Canada) carded a six-over 77 to tie for 37th place after the first-round, while freshman Violeta Retamoza (Aguascalientes, Mexico) and junior Tai Perry (Unionville, Pa.) posted a pair of 47th-place tying seven-over 78s to account for UT scoring. Junior Mary Jan Fernandez (Henderson, Nev.) fired an 84 to round out the Lady Vol effort. The Big Orange holds a .660 winning percentage against the field and also own a winning record against 10 of the 17 tournament participants. UT continues the Arizona Wildcat Invitational on Tuesday with tee times beginning at 8:00 a.m. MST.
