SAN ANTONIO - On a chilly, breezy morning, the UHV women's golf team opened the 2017-18 season with a slow start Monday.
The Jaguars posted a team score of 386 and stood in seventh place after the opening round of the Alamo City Classic hosted by Trinity University at the Quarry Golf Course. The final round is set for Tuesday.
The Jaguars are 73 shots back of first-round leader and host Trinity. Trinity posted a 314 score and stands 23 shots in front of second place Southwestern University.
Freshman Lorrin Dickey paced the Jaguars with a 46-45-91 and is tied for 24th individually in the 38-player field. Dickey is followed by junior Reid Whaley with a 51-45-96 and freshman Leah Lerma at 50-48-98. Sophomore Viviana Yzquierdo (45-56) and freshman Jocelyn Villafranca (48-53) are in at 101.
Trinity's Emilee Strausberg is the first-round leader with a 5-over par 76, one shot ahead of teammate Shelby DeVore (77) and Hardin-Simmons' Kayleigh Mints (77).
The Jaguars started the day on holes No. 17 and 18, two of the tougher driving holes at the Quarry course, and stood at 6-over as a team after their opening hole. The Jaguars were finally able to put their games together after the fifth hole but most of the damage had already been done.
