LADY VOL GOLFERS TIED FOR FIFTH AFTER FIRST DAY OF BRYAN NATIONAL COLLEGIATE

March 28, 2003

GREENSBORO, N.C.

The No. 10 University of Tennessee Lady Vol golf squad opened up in a solid fifth-place tie, among a stern field that includes nine Top 25 squads, with a nine-over 298 at the 2003 Bryan National Collegiate in Greensboro, N.C. The Lady Vols are 12 strokes off the lead pace set by the Duke Blue Devils with a 286. Individually, Jessica Shepley (Oakville, Ontario, Canada) fired a two-under 70, which is just one shot shy of tourney leaders Duke's Kristina Engstrom and South Carolina's Kristy McPherson's pair of 69s. Shepley's first round stands as the seventh par-or-under round of her career.

Junior Tai Perry (Unionville, Pa.) continued her recent resurgence as a top contributor to the Big Orange cause with a 16th-place tying two-over 74, while freshman Violeta Retamoza (Aguascalientes, Mexico) carded a three-over 75 to tie for 26th-place. Junior Mary Jan Fernandez (Henderson, Nev.) posted a 79 to tie for 58th-place, while rookie Golda Johansson (Lund, Sweden) remained in her current slump with a 77th-place tying 83.

UT continues the Bryan National Collegiate with a second-round Saturday and concludes the tourney Sunday with a final-round shotgun start at 8:30 a.m.
