Women's Golf in 11th Place at Piedmont College

CLARKESVILLE, GA – The North Georgia women's golf team is in 11th place in a field of 13 teams following Monday's opening round of the 5th Annual Piedmont College Fall Invitational at The Orchard Golf and Country Club.

Lady Saints recorded a round of 365 to open the year, as new players, a new coach, and record-breaking performances were the story of the day. Four of the five players donned North Georgia gear for the first time, while newly named head coach Leigh Anne Hunter paid close attention to her squad as they made their way around The Orchard.

Catalina Olarte recorded the low round of the day for the Lady Saints, walking off the 18th green with an 8-over-par 80 and the lowest round in program history. Erica Breeden and Casey Truelove, playing in back-to-back groups, both played their way to rounds of 94, sitting at 12-over-par heading into Tuesday's final round.

Jodie Borchert and Courtney Hall recorded rounds of 97 and 100 respectively, putting the Lady Saints at 365 overall for the day. The 365 is also a program record, breaking the previous mark of 399 set during the second round of the 2010 Peach Belt Conference Championships at Callaway Gardens.

The Lady Saints will kickoff their second and final round of the 5th Annual Piedmont College Fall Invitational at The Orchard Golf and Country Club on Tuesday morning with a shogun start at 9:00 a.m.
