COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — The Texas A&M women's golf team is in third place after the first day of the Icon Invitational at 3-over par. The second of two rounds Monday was suspended due to darkness after a lightning delay earlier in the day.

“We’re very proud of how hard the girls fought today,” said head coach Andrea Gaston. “We played in every kind of condition; wind, rain, a little sun and finally some hail.”

“We saw a lot of great shots made today, and believe that our preparation prior to getting here played a big part in our performance,” added Gaston. “Many of the shots we practiced late last week were some of the same shots they hit today. We saw the girls playing with more confidence and belief in themselves. We’re excited to get back at it tomorrow morning and certainly hope to finish strong.”

The Aggies are just six shots behind tournament co-leaders Houston and Purdue at 5-over. The Aggies had a 7-over 295 in the opening round and are 4-over during the second round.

Sophomore Amber Park leads the Aggies at even par through 33 holes on the par 72 / 6,392 yard Tournament Course at The Woodlands Country Club. Park shot a first-round 74, and is 2-under through 15 holes of her second round.

Junior Courtney Dow shot an even-par 72 in her first round, and is tied for 11th in the tournament at 2-over par. It was Dow’s sixth round of at least even par on the season.

Freshmen Brooke Tyree and Katie Finley are each tied for 22nd at 5-over par. Tyree shot a first-round 75, and is 2-over through 15 holes in the second round. Finley shot a 3-over 75 on her first trip around the Tournament Course, and is 2-over through 16 holes in the second round. Sophomore Ava Schwienteck is 2-over through 14 holes in the second round, and is tied for 35th at 7-over for the tournament.

The resumption of the second round, followed by the final round of the 54-hole event, tees off at 8 a.m. Tuesday. Live scoring is available on golfstat.com.
