Women’s Golf’s streak of 12-straight conference championships, which is currently the third longest in the nation, is in serious jeopardy after round one of the MAAC championships in Orlando, Fla. The Saints currently sit 22 strokes behind the tournament leader Butler after the first 18-holes.
Victoria Nguyen is the Saints’ top leader with a eight-over par and sits tied for sixth in the standings. Valerie Wijaya falls behind her by one stroke, and is currently ninth.
As a team, Siena recorded just three birdies in the first round while registering 48 shots at least one over par.
Butler, who is playing in their first MAAC Championships holds the teams lead with an 18-over-par. The Bulldogs also holds the individual leader with Isabella Lambert and Jenna Peters in a three-way tie with Boston University’s Kristyna Pavlickova at three-over-par.
The Saints and the Bulldogs met last year in the NCAA Central Regional, with the Bulldogs finishing one place ahead of Siena by 11 strokes.
Round two tees off tomorrow. Fans can follow live golf results by clicking here.
