ASU golf has solid performances on first day of SWAC Championship

The first day of the Southwestern Athletic Conference men's and women's golf championship has been completed and both the men and women finished the first day in second place.

The championship is being played at the Links on the Bayou course in Alexandria.  The course measures 5,884 yards with a par of 72 for the women and measures 6,842 yards for the men.

The women entered the tournament as the top-seed and shot a 323 on opening day.  Amelie Buhl led the Lady Hornets with a 77, followed by Aileen Meredith's 77.  Danielle Robinson shot an 85 and Jessica Williams had an 83.  Taaj Hubbard and Lyndsey McCall also played and shot a 94 and 92.

Buhl's 77 was the low score for the first round while Meredith's 78 was the second lowest score.

The women will enter the second day of the championship trailing only Jackson State who shot a 322 on opening day.  ASU leads third-place Prairie View by 26 strokes (349).

The men entered the championship as the third seed and shot a solid 10-over par 298 led by Anthony Dadamo's even-par 72.  John Montgomery came in with a 73 followed by Corey Price's 75 and Scott Benson's 78.  Joseph Morrison shot an 81 and Joseph Killebrew shot a 77.

Even with ASU's strong showing, they will enter tomorrow's round trailing defending champion Jackson State by 17 shots.  JSU shot a 7-under par 281.  The Hornets hold a slim eight-stroke lead over Texas Southern who shot a 306.

Even with both teams still in contention for the conference title, head coach Gary Grandison was not overly impressed with today's effort.

"I did not think we played well today," Grandison said.  "We had way too many three putts and I expect us to regroup tonight and come out and play much better tomorrow."

The second day of the championship will begin tomorrow with the men teeing off at 8 a.m. followed by the women teeing off at 8:15 a.m.
