Broken Arrow, Okla. — BYU women’s golf shot 2-over par as a team in the first round of the Dale McNamara Invitational, putting the Cougars just one-shot back of UNLV through 18-holes play.

"We had a solid first round today," said BYU head coach Carrie Roberts. "Annick and Lila really stepped up. Annick had her distances dialed in and Lila made some great saves to keep her under par."

Annick Haczkiewicz shot 3-under 69 in the opening round to lead the Cougars and take sole possession of third. The senior carded five birdies and two bogeys in her opening round.

Lila Galeai found herself one shot back of her teammate after posting three birdies and a lone bogey on her way to a 2-under 70. The sophomore sits in a tie for fourth.

Allysha Mae Mateo sits in a tie for 23rd after firing a 2-over 74 in the first round. Adeline Anderson shot 77 and is tied for 41st.  Kerstin Fotu rounded out the scoring for the Cougars shooting 8-over to tie for 63rd.

BYU freshman Alexa Udom, playing as an individual, posted a 3-over 75 and finds herself in a tie for 28th after her first tournament round as a Cougar.

"It was pretty windy today but manageable," said Roberts. "We need to tighten up a few things and minimize the mistakes to put us in contention tomorrow."

The Cougars at 290 are one shot behind UNLV at 289 and three shots clear of Nebraska who holds the third spot at 293. Sam Houston and New Mexico round out the top five at 297. 

The second round was suspended due to darkness and will be resumed Tuesday morning followed by the 18-hole final round.

PROVO, Utah — BYU women's golf will tee it up in its last tournament of the fall season on Oct. 11-12 at the Dale McNamara Invitational at the Golf Club of Oklahoma in Broken Arrow.

“We love to compete and are looking forward to teeing it up this week,” said BYU head coach Carrie Roberts. “Hopefully we learned a few things from our last event and can execute better this time around.”

The BYU women’s golf team opened the 2021-22 campaign with two straight victories at the Dick McGuire Invitational and Mercedes Benz Collegiate Championship.  They followed the two wins with a third-place finish at the Golfweek Challenge.

Annick Haczkiewicz, Kerstin Fotu, Allysha Mae Mateo, Addie Anderson and Lila Galeai will comprise the Cougar team with Alexa Udom teeing it up in her first collegiate event as an individual competitor.

The University of Tulsa will host BYU, Fresno State, Kansas State, Lamar, Nebraska, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Sam Houston State, SMU, Texas State, UNLV and UTSA at the 6,200-yard Golf Club of Oklahoma.

The 54-hole event will be played over the two days with 36-holes on Monday followed by an 18-hole final round on Tuesday.
