TSU struggled in its first outing of the spring by carding a 77-over, 361. Junior Haleigh Riley led all Tigers with a 17-over, 88, and finished two strokes ahead of teammates Morgan Rood and Kalee Rhodes. Junior Savannah Szozda posted the last scoring mark for the Big Blue with a 22-over, 93.

Despite struggling on the course, Riley thrived on the greens today using just 26 putts, including eight one-putts. The junior highlighted the day by chipping in for birdie from 30 yards out on No. 15.
