The Washington women’s golf team was tied for 10th after the first round of the NCAA championships Friday at Karsten Creek Golf Course in Stillwater, Okla.

The No. 15 Huskies sit at 15-over 303 and are tied with Florida, 10 strokes behind leader USC.

“I was proud of our group today for sticking to our game plan,” UW coach Mary Lou Mulflur said. “This is a really tough course, and it played that way today as no one is under par (as a team).”

Sarah Rhee and Rino Sasaki were the top Huskies as they were tied for 35th after shooting a 3-over 75. Karen Miyamoto was tied for 51st at 4-over and Wenyung Keh was tied for 68th at 5-over.

The leader was Wake Forest’s Jennifer Kupcho, who shot a 7-under 65. She has a three-stroke lead.

Stroke play continues through Sunday. The Huskies are hoping to be one of 15 teams that make it to Monday.
