CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - After one round of play at the Ruth's Chris Tar Heel Invitational, the Ole Miss women's golf team is in seventh place out of 18 teams in the tournament which is being played at the UNC Finley Golf Course.

Ole Miss (11-over, 299) was led by Ericka Schneider who hit all 18 greens today en route to an even par 72 in the first round.  She ended the day in a tie for ninth in the 95-player field.

"Day one is in the books and our success today is a product of our great attitude and the ability to W.I.N. every shot," head coach Michele Drinkard said.  "We struck the ball well today and hit a lot of greens in regulation.  We need to putt a little better inside six feet, which we did a lot of during our practice session."

Virginia led the field after the first round, carding a 2-under 286.  Baylor's Haley Davis leads the field after day one firing a 5-under 67.

Haley Sanders carded a 3-over 75 followed by Abby Newton and Alison Hovatter who each carded a 4-over 76 while Taelor Rubin carded a 5-over 77.

Ole Miss will continue play in the Ruth's Chris Tar Heel Invitational tomorrow and live stats can be found at golfstat.com. Fans can also follow the women's golf team on Twitter @OleMissWGolf and on Facebook at Facebook.com/OleMissWGolf.
