Rollins shoots school-record opening round, leads Super Regional
POOLER, Ga. -- Top-ranked Rollins shot a program-postseason-record 284 and opened a 13-shot lead after Day 1 of the NCAA Division II Super Region 2 Tournament on Sunday.
The Tars torched Savannah Quarters Country Club with the four-under par score and bettered their previous postseason best of 288, set at the 2005 NCAA National Championship at Western New Mexico.
Third-ranked Florida Tech is second after shooting a 297 while Saint Leo (300) is third. Florida Southern (302) and Lynn (303) round out the top five.
Annie Dulman and Lexie Toth both turned in two-under rounds of 70 and are tied for second place.
Dulman, the top-ranked player in Division II, hung four birdies on the day to just a pair of bogeys. She capped the round with a solid birdie-3 on the 18th hole, putting her approach shot from 125 yards out just a few feet from the pin.
Just a freshman, Toth enjoyed the second-best round of her career and also had a highlight with an eagle on the 258-yard, par-four 11th. She gathered birdies at one, seven and 13 on the day.
Madison Lellyo and Paige Lyle are tied for seventh with even-par rounds of 72. Lellyo was one-over at the turn but played the back at one-under to get back to even. Lyle’s day included birdies at one, 11 and 12.
Hally Leadbetter is tied for 27th after opening with a five-over 77.
Lynn's Samantha Barber leads the field by one stroke after a three-under 69 Sunday.
