    ROBSON, Texas - The Southern Illinois women's golf team is in 12th place with a team score of 313 after day one of the North Texas Classic.

    "We had a rain delay this morning and we were supposed to play 36 and we didn't tee off until 12:30," said head coach Diane Daugherty. "The course was a lot different than it was yesterday, but it played the same for everybody, so we're not making excuses."

    Kelly Gerlach was SIU's low-scorer, shooting a 76 in the first round of play to tie for 19th place. Lauren May finished tied for 35th with a 78 (37-41) and Kate Laegeler finished in a tie for 44th with a 79 (38-41).

    Christine Zoerlein finished tied for 52nd with a first-round total of 80 (39-41). Braidy Hood rounded out the Salukis' line-up with an 85 (43-42), tying her for 75th.

    "We know we're better than a 313 team," said Daugherty. "We started off pretty rough, so to shoot that 313 we had to play pretty strong coming in. We're disappointed, but I'm still proud of them because they did finish strong, We're hoping for a better round tomorrow and hopefully move up a little bit."

    The Salukis will try to gain ground tomorrow in the final round of the tournament, which is set to begin at 8 a.m. at Robson Ranch
