No. 22 Ohio State In 11th Place at NCAA Central Regional
May 8, 2014
STILLWATER, Okla. - Ohio State Women's Golf shot a 17-over 305 in the opening round of the NCAA Central Regional, sitting in 11th place after Day One. With 36 more holes to go, the Buckeyes are just three strokes out of the NCAA-Championship-advancing top-8.
A trifecta of Buckeye freshmen - Zoe-Beth Brake, Katja Pogacar, Jessica Porvasnik - have all grabbed a share of 25th place on the individual leaderboard after carding 75s (+3) in the first trip around the course. Upperclassmen Allison Harper and Claudia Lim split the fourth score contributed to the team tally, both posting 8-over 80s.
Porvasnik ignited her day by hole-ing out from 95 yards deep with a pitching wedge for an eagle on Hole 1. She added on three birdies en route to her 75. Brake tallied three birdies as well while Pogacar utilized 13 pars (one birdie, four bogies).
It was a roller coaster ride for Lim, notching four birdies while also etching two doubles and a quadruple bogey.
Ohio State is set to tee off in the late session for Round Two, slated to get going at 12.50 p.m. ET off Hole 10 paired with Florida and North Carolina.
