Release:   03/02/2014

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. -- The Bucknell women's golf team is playing outdoors for the first time this spring at the largest collegiate tournament in the country, and the Bison opened the tournament Sunday with a 338 team score to stand in a tie for 31st place out of 36 teams. Bridget Wilcox posted a first-round 81 to help Bucknell outduel Richmond, Rutgers, The Citadel and Niagara.

Bucknell opened the tournament at the Oak Point Course at Kiawah, and Wilcox carded the team's low round of the day. The Bison started on the back nine, and Wilcox pocketed the team's first birdie of the spring at the par-5 fourth hole.

Fellow seniors Lauren Bernard and Kasha Scott both posted 83s, while Emily Timmons shot 91 and Ellie McGuire 99.

Backed by a 3-under-par 69 from tournament co-leader Taylor McGraw, Troy has the 18-hole team lead with a score of 291. Jacksonville State, Kent State and St. John's are all just one shot back. North Florida (295) and Chattanooga (297) also broke 300 on Sunday.

Anna Kim of St. John's and Wad Phaewchimplee of Kent State also shot 69 to join McGraw atop the individual leaderboard. Sammie Buchanan of UNC Greensboro and Maya Parsons of Jacksonville State are both one shot back.

Bucknell will move over to Cougar Point for Monday's second round. The top 19 teams will qualify to play in the championship flight for Tuesday's final round. Live scoring is available at GolfStat.com.
