WAYNESVILLE, N.C. (Oct. 18, 2004) - The talented East Tennessee State tandem of junior Ashley Barton (Seffner, Fla.) and freshman Maria Ringdahl (Farjestaden, Sweden) both finished tied for fifth at 1-over-par 73, helping lead the Lady Bucs to a fourth-place team standing following first-round play Monday at the Great Smokies Women's Collegiate at the Waynesville Country Club.

 

The Lady Bucs are 10-strokes back of first-place and host team Western Carolina, which shot a school-record 291 to lead the 24-team field. Barton and Ringdahl are just one stroke back of second place, but Western's Ashley Hovda holds a commanding five-stroke lead following a first round 67.

 

As for the rest of the Lady Bucs, freshman Natalia Giraldo (Cali, Colombia) is currently tied for 10th at 2-over, while senior Danielle O'Reilly (Whistler, British Columbia) and junior Kailey Brooks (Bracebridge, Ontario) are both tied for 77th.
