Austin Peay's women's golf team finds itself in fifth place after the first round of the Ohio Valley Conference golf championships being played at the Country Club of Paducah (Ky.). The Lady Govs shot an opening-round 347.

“I am confident our young ladies will give it their best shot,” says APSU Coach Mark Leroux. “Our goal is to attempt to be as competitive as we can and position ourselves as high as we are capable.”

Sophomore Christine Idoux was APSU's top finisher for round one, shooting an 81 (39-42), good enough for a seventh-place tie and just three strokes off the leading pace.

Fellow sophomore Erin Wise had the Lady Govs second-best score at 86, followed by Pier-Ann LaChance (88)—playing in her first tourney in a month, Lynn Mantooth (92) and Amanda Rose (96).

Tennessee Tech is the surprise leader after the first round with a 323, followed by favorite Murray State's 325 and Jacksonville State at 327.
