BIRMINGHAM – The Ole Miss women’s golf team is sitting tied for 11th place after the first round of the SEC Championships was suspended on Friday (April 18) at Greystone Golf and Country Club. Freshman Maria Toennessen leads the Rebel contingent with an opening round of 3-over par 75.

An approximately four-hour rain delay on Friday morning pushed back the start of play, and action was halted shortly after 7 p.m. due to darkness. Groups from Alabama, Arkansas and South Carolina have between one and five holes to complete on Saturday morning. The continuation of Friday’s first round will resume at 8 a.m. on Saturday. The second 18 holes will begin at approximately 10 a.m.

The Rebels, who started on the back nine, fired a 25-over par 313 to open action at the championships and are tied with Kentucky in the standings. Ole Miss is a stroke ahead of Tennessee and holds an 8-stroke lead over Mississippi State.

" I like the way Maria is maturing in her game," said head coach Michele Drinkard. "She played as well as I have seen her play all year today.  As a team, when the conditions are this tough we need to take the attitude of 'where ever the ball is, my short game will put me in good position to make par'  Tomorrow I would like to see them continue with sticking to their process and battle."

In a day that was marred with weather conditions and delays, Ole Miss played well given the conditions. Toennessen had an exceptional front nine going 1-over par through the first nine holes while collecting a birdie on No. 13. Taelor Rubin also opened the round well. The junior was the first Rebel to tee off and opened the round with four holes of par and closed the first nine at 2-over par.

Abby Newton is sitting at 6-over par 78 after the opening round. The Katy, Texas native made the turn at 5-over par and closed the round on a high note, going 1-over par on the final nine holes of the round. She is currently sitting in 38th place in the individual standings.

Stani Schiavone and Alison Hovatter both closed the round with a 9-over par 81, while Rubin closed with a 7-over par 79.

Arkansas is the on-course leader at six-over-par, when play was suspended on Friday. LSU is the clubhouse leader after firing a seven-over-par 295. Auburn, which also concluded its round on Friday, recorded an eight-over-par 296, while Vanderbilt charted a 10-over-par 298.

Alabama’s Janie Jackson is the on-course individual leader with a three-under-par 57 through 15 holes. Vanderbilt’s Jenny Hahn is the clubhouse individual leader with a one-under-par 71. Florida’s Sarah Schober and Maria Torres are both tied for third with even-par 72 scores, while Arkansas’ Regina Plasencia is also at even par with a 60 through 15 holes.

The Rebels will continue action at the SEC Championships on Saturday (April 19). The Rebels will be open second round action starting at 10 a.m.
