The Phoenix sit six strokes behind the leader, No.4 Dalton State, after the first day. Two other Mid-South Conference teams participate in the tournament, No. 6 University of the Cumberlands that tied for second and Lindsey Wilson that is currently tied with the Phoenix for fourth.
Maria Pilar Scenna carded a career day, shooting a two-under-par 70 on the day for a share of the lead. Scenna recorded a tournament high six birdies on the day, earning three on both the front and back nine, including three in a row on holes 12-14.
Another Cumberland golfer also cracked the top ten, Raquel Romero Valverde sitting at seventh with a two-over-par day. The senior stood at three-under-par after 10 holes, but a bogey and then three-straight holes of over-par pushed her back in the standings.
