Fourteenth-ranked Florida leads the field shooting a 10-under 278. Vanderbilt did not finish its round but was 8-under through 15 holes. Arkansas was three shots ahead of Penn State, the College of Charleston and Furman, all of whom were through 15 holes.
From Shauna Taylor
We got off to a solid start today. I’m really proud of Brooke (Matthews). She was so solid in her first round as a Razorback. She has grown so much and it was great to finally watch her compete. We didn’t make a lot of putts today but maintained a steady pace until the end. We are in a great position with a great game plan heading into the last two rounds.
