Women's Golf sits on the Cut Line after Day One
Emma Hermansson shot a 77 in round one to sit inside the Top 30.

SILVIS, Ill.—Cumberland women’s golf shot a 321 to sit directly on the cut line heading into day two of the NAIA National Championships at TPC Deere Run. 

British Columbia leads after day one after the Thunderbirds posted a nine-over as a team. Keiser sits in second, four strokes back, after shooting a 297 and Dalton State is in third after a 301. 

The Phoenix are dead on the cut line sitting tied for 17th place. After the morning groups Cumberland posted the third-highest score amongst the teams playing early, but the afternoon groups posted much higher scores on average than the morning group to help Cumberland. 

The top 17 teams and ties move on to play on day three and day four as well as the top 40 individuals.

Emma Hermansson shot the lowest-score for Cumberland with a six-over-par 77. Starting on the back-nine, Hermansson shot par on each hole except a double bogey on 14. She posted three bogeys and a double on the front, but finished strong with a birdie on Hole No. 9. She is tied for 29th.

Jasmine Sachdev posted a 9-over 80 to sit tied for 68th place. She started her day with a double bogey on Hole No. 10 before going bogey-par-bogey-par-bogey over the first five holes. She ended the front with another double for seven-over through the first nine, but Sachdev got it together on the front firing a birdie on No. 1 to shoot a two-over on the front.

Nathalie Nutu is tied for 78th place after shooting a 10-over 81. Nutu played the back-nine three-over with a birdie on Hole No. 16, a par three, but shot seven-over on the front with five bogeys, a double, and three pars. 

Ida Furuheim shot an 83 in the first round. Furuheim picked up two birdies in her round for the most on the team in round one. She went seven-over on the back with a birdie on Hole 14 and went five-over on the front with a birdie on Hole 8. Furuheim is tied for 100th individually.

Anna Krieger posted an 84 in the round to finish tied for 105th. Krieger started the day with a par, but fell on the bogey train with five-straight bogeys from Hole 11-15. She picked up a birdie on Hole 17 to shoot a 40 on the back. On the front, Krieger had a stretch of five holes where she posted double bogeys on four-of-the-five and added a bogey on No. 9 to finish her round for the 13-over.

Cumberland will tee off tomorrow at noon with Oklahoma City and Indiana Wesleyan on the front.
