MAUI, Hawai’i – Led by sophomore Abby Newton and freshman Maria Toennessen, who both fired a 2-over par 74, the Ole Miss women’s golf team is sitting in seventh place after the opening round at the Aunenue Spring Break Classic on Monday (March 24).

“Abby and Maria had a lot of good looks at birdie today,” said associate head coach Janell Howland. “They both also made a lot of putts. They were very confident in their line and saw them going in. We’re  looking forward to more of the same the next two days.” 

Ole Miss who combined for an opening round of 303, is four strokes ahead of Oregon State out of the Pac -12 and is two strokes out of fifth place. Pepperdine and Washington are leading the field and are both sitting at 2-over par 290, six strokes ahead of third place San Jose State.

There is a three-way tie atop the individual leaderboard with UC Davis’ Betty Chen, Washington’s Ying Luo and Pepperdine’s Grace Na all firing a 2-under par 70 to lead the field.

Toennessen had a good opening round and posted four birdies on the afternoon. The Grimstad, Norway native, played both sides of the course at 1-over par and her round of 74 was just one stroke off her career low of 73 set in the fall at the Mercedes Benz Championship.

Newton continues to play strong for the Rebels and had one of the highlights of the round with an eagle on No. 6, marking the third consecutive round that an Ole Miss player has recorded an eagle. Stani Schiavone and Taelor Rubin have also nailed eagles this season. Newton was at a -2 on the front nine after her eagle before two double bogey’s placed her at +3 on the front. The sophomore regrouped on the back nine and was -1 after the turn closing the day in a tie for 12th.

Schiavone also had a solid outing, shooting 4-over par 76 putting her in a tie for 26th place, while Alison Hovatter closed at 7-over par 79 and Taelor Rubin was at 10-over par 82. For the round the Rebels recorded 13 birdies.

In the individual competition, Kaitlin Voll led the field firing a 3-over par 75, placing her in 21st place, while Kathryn Fowler carded a 17-over par 89.

Ole Miss will continue action at the Aunenue Spring Break Classic on Tuesday (March 25). The team will open the round with a shotgun start at 7:45 a.m. (HT).  For all Ole Miss women’s golf news and information, go to OleMissSports.com, and follow the Rebels on Twitter at @OleMissWGolf and on Facebook at Ole Miss WGolf.
