April 21, 2003
Columbia, Mo. - The Wildcats were in fifth place after day one of the Big 12 Women's Golf Championship at the Country Club of Missouri. K-State, facing windy and wet conditions, finished with a combined score of 312 (+24) to finish two strokes ahead of Oklahoma (314).
"It was a tough day of golf," head coach Kristi Knight said. "The hole locations were difficult and the greens were a lot faster today. But we played hard and didn't get impatient."
Missouri led all teams after the first round. The Tigers recorded a 304 to place three strokes ahead of Texas. Oklahoma State's Christi Cano was the leader among individuals. She shot a 1-over par 73.
In her first appearance at the Big 12 Championships, Stephanie Limoges held her own. The sophomore shot a 77 in the first round to tie for 11th.
"It was a nice day for Stephanie," Knight said. "I am proud of her. She was nervous this morning. But on her first tee, she just nailed it and walked off smiling."
The Big 12 Championships continue Tuesday and Wednesday. The field plays 18 holes each day, starting at 8 a.m.
