Siena Women’s Golf senior Kristen Bromley sits tied atop the individual leaderboard following the First Round of the MAAC Golf Championships at Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Overall, the Saints stand fourth through the first 18 of 54 holes.
“We are very much in it after Day One,” said head coach Dave Wronowski. “The course played very difficult, as evidenced by the scoring, but overall I am pleased with the team’s effort and patience to work through some of the difficulties.”
Defending MAAC Champion Quinnipiac currently holds down the top spot, with a one stroke lead over Monmouth and a four-shot advantage on UAlbany. The Saints are 12 strokes off the lead following a First Round score of 332.
Bromley is tied with Great Danes’ Paige Fujihara after each carded scores of 78. Bromley was remarkably consistent, recording 12 pars on the afternoon.
“Kristen didn’t even have her best day today, which shows you how experienced and what a great player that she is to still be able to be tied for the lead,” explained Wronowski. “She’s got a great couple of days ahead of her I think, and will be a lot of fun to watch.”
Meanwhile sophomore Sara Riso is only two strokes off the lead at +8. She birdied her final hole to finish the day with a round of 80.
The Saints will once again be paired with Hartford and Dayton for Saturday’s Second Round which tees off at 8:15 a.m.
