CHARLESTON, S.C. - Senior Ericka Schneider shot a team-best 1-over 73 on day one of the Cougar Classic in Charleston, S.C Sunday.
Schneider is in a tie for 33rd place after the first day of the Cougar Classic hosted by Charleston Southern at Yeamans Hall.
"It was good to knock out the first round of the season and even though it was an average scoring round for us, I saw a lot of really positive things," head coach Michele Drinkard said. "One being that our top priority today was to hit a lot of greens and we did that. The pins were tucked to the edges today and so it was a must to hit in the fatter areas of the greens. The area we can improve on tomorrow is five footers so we spent the majority of our practice session on putting. Look for the ladies to relax a bit more tomorrow, free it up and go low."
As a team, the Rebels ended day one in a tie for 15th place as they shot an 11-over 299. Ole Miss faces a tough field at the three-day tournament as 10 of the top 15 teams from the 2012 NCAA Championship, including each of the top five, are competing.
"I didn't hit the ball that well but I managed to score pretty well," Schneider said. "I stuck to my process and my game plan and it was to go for the center of the greens to give myself good opportunities."
Freshman Abby Newton and redshirt freshman Alison Hovatter were each making their first career start for Ole Miss. Newton fired a two-over 74 on Sunday (T49 th) while Hovatter shot a four-over 76 (T77th ).
Sophomore Taelor Rubin, who finished the day with a 4-over 76, recorded three birdies on the day including two on the back nine to finish in a tie for 77th.
Senior Haley Sanders finished the day shooting a 4-over 76 to end day one in a tie for 77th.
Southern Cal leads the field after day one shooting a 3-under 285 on the day. Individually, Florida's Isabelle Lendl leads the field, as she shot a 5-under 67.
