    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Saluki women's golf sits in eighth place in the team standings after the first two rounds on Day One of the North Florida Intercollegiate on Monday.

    At the end of the first day, Western Carolina stands atop to the team standings with a two-round total of 613. Southern ranks eighth after shooting a first-round 325 and a second-round 323.

    Leading the Salukis once again was sophomore Mattie Lindner (tied for 16th), who leads all individual competitors at the intercollegiate with a 36-hole score of 157 after shooting a 78 and a 79 on Day One. Lindner currently holds the second-best 18-hole average on SIU's roster at 78.6.

    Senior Cassie Rushing, who does own Southern's best average this season (76.4), was SIU's top team finisher of the day in a tie for 19th place. Rushing shot a two-round score of 158, which included a bounce-back 78 in the second round after shooting an 80 to open play. The first-round 80 is only her fourth such round in eight tournaments in 2013-14.
