After four hour rain delay, Arkansas leads

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- After a nearly four hour rain delay it took No. 5 Arkansas three-and-a-half hours to play the first nine holes at the rain-soaked SEC Women’s Golf championship on Friday.

The Razorbacks made it through part of the second nine before darkness chased the remaining teams from the Founder’s Course at Greystone Golf and Country Club.  Despite the long day, tough conditions and shortened play, Arkansas leads the field at six-over with about three holes remaining in the first round.

The Razorbacks, No. 6 South Carolina and No. 7 Alabama, all playing together, are the only teams not to finish. Teams will return to the course at 9 a.m. ET Saturday to finish the first round.

Sophomore Regina Plasencia leads Arkansas and is even through 15 holes. She is currently tied for third overall. Senior Emily Tubert is tied for sixth at plus-one, followed by sophomore Gabriela Lopez who is tied for 14th at two-over. Both players have counted 12 holes. Sophomore Gabriela Lopez is tied for 22 at three-over through 15 holes and freshman Summar Roachell is seven-over through 15 holes.

The first flight of teams was able to tee off at their scheduled times but overnight rains had already drenched the course before a heavy morning rain suspended play.

Although play for round one is not complete, Arkansas holds a one-shot lead over No. 16 LSU who is in the clubhouse with a full round 295. Auburn, ranked No. 22 is third with a 296 followed by No. 13 Vanderbilt in fourth with 298. No. 6 South Carolina and No. 7 Alabama are tied for fifth overall and are plus-13, but, like Arkansas, have not completed the first round. The rest of the field includes No. 52 Georgia with 302, No. 76 Missouri with 303, No. 19 Florida with 304, No. 36 Texas A&M with 305, No. 70 Mississippi and No. 30 Kentucky tied for 11th with 313, No. 55 Tennessee in 13th with 314 and No. 29 Mississippi State in 14th place with 321.
