BRASELTON, Georgia - The Chateau Course at the Chateau Elan Resort proved to be the winner on day one of the NJCAA Women's Golf Tournament. The hot day compounded the challenge along with the hills and hard greens. All in all though, the Seminole State Raiders sit in great shape for the remaining three rounds. SSC is in second place, six shots behind defending NJCAA National Champion Daytona State. The Raiders shot 306 with Roanne Tomlinson leading SSC with a 74 (+3), good enough for a tie for fourth. Tuan-Yu "Erica" Chiang, 76 (+5) and Kayla Poff, 77 (+6) joined Roanne in the top 10, T8th and T10th, respectively.
Coach Christa Teno was not pleased with the golf, "I thought we finished a bit sluggish," stated Teno. She was pleased with the teams position, "As poorly as we played down the stretch, I believe we are in good shape for the remaining 54 holes."
The Raiders' Sarah Harrison is first to tee off at 8 a.m. on Tuesday. Check for live updates on twitter: @buildingRaiders and scoring:
