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.
