After a three-month break from competition, the Michigan women’s golf team traveled to Rio Grande, Puerto Rico for the three-day Lady Puerto Rico Classic this weekend.
Following a first round team score of 309 on Sunday, the Wolverines stand in 12th place out of 16 teams at the Trump International Golf Club.
Michigan was lead by sophomore Meagan Bauer, who carded an even-par 72 and is currently tied for sixth place overall.
“I was really happy with Meagan Bauer’s round today,” Michigan coach Cheryl Stacy said.
It was Bauer’s second career round of par or better.
Senior captain Ashley Bauer, Meagan’s sister, carded the Wolverines’ second best score with a round of 78.
Ashley’s career average of 75.98 is the best in Michigan women’s golf history, and she will be counted on to carry the load for the Wolverines.
Junior Katelin Davis carded a first-round score of 79, and junior Min Yean Tan and senior Andrea Ratigan both carded an 80 to round out the scores for Michigan.
After an average-at-best first round, the Wolverines will look to improve their scores as they head into the second and third rounds on Monday and Tuesday.
“Overall we were a little rusty,” Stacy said. “I was kind of disappointed with our score today, but I feel like we are in good shape to come back with two good rounds.”
Michigan will continue play on Monday at 6:45 a.m. AST, and the tournament will be completed on Tuesday.
