Athens, GA - The No. 15 Virginia women's golf team is in 13th place following the first round of play at the 23-team Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic at the University of Georgia Golf Course. Virginia shot 32-over 320 in windy playing conditions that allowed just one competitor in the 120-player field to break par.

Virginia junior Calle Nielson, coming off a second-place finish at the Tiger/Wave Golf Classic, is tied for second following Friday's round. She finished at 2-over 74 along with two other golfers. That group is chasing Duke's Lindy Duncan who shot 2-under 70 to grab the early lead.

Duke, ranked fourth has a nine-shot lead at 12-over 300. North Carolina, Purdue and Auburn are tied for second at 310.

Virginia's other scores include an 80 by Brittany Altomare to stand 46th, a pair of 82s from Nicole Agnello and Joy Kim to place 66th and an 84 by Lauren Greenlief to put her in 92nd place. Eleana Collins shot 87 and is 113th.

The second round will take place Saturday. Live scoring is online at Golfstat.com.
