SAN ANGELO, Texas - Western Washington University's Claire Rachor (Sr., Bellingham) is in an eight-way tie for 13th place in medalist play and the Vikings are ninth in the team standings after first-day action Monday at the first Angelo State University Concho River Classic being played at the Bentwood Country Club.
Tuesday's final round begins at 8 a.m.
The Vikings shot 321in their season-opening round. St. Edward's, ranked fourth nationally, is leading at 297, three shots ahead of Midwestern State.
"We had a good round going, but we struggled at the end," said WWU coach Bo Stephan (8th year). "We didn't look tournament sharp, but that's to be expected in our first competition. We can definitely put a good round together tomorrow."
Rachor shot a 4-over 76 to lead the Vikings.
Heading the medalist standings after shooting a 2-under 70 is Flower Castillo from Incarnate Word. She holds a one-shot advantage over Angelo State's Abby Bobo. St. Edward's Wallis Spears shot even par 72 and is third.
