HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. — Mary Hardin-Baylor didn’t have a player break 80 on Tuesday but kept its head above water in the first round of the NCAA Division III Women’s Golf Championships.

UMHB posted a 333 and finished the opening day as part of a four-way tie for 11th place at Mission Inn Resort and Club. Claremont-Mudd-Scripps shared the first-round lead with Williams at 311. After Thursday’s third round, the field will be cut to the top 15 teams and top six other individuals for the final round.

Emily Ming shot an 80 on Tuesday to anchor the Lady Crusaders and was tied for 24th in the individual standings. Annie Hasselbach (81), Olivia Robinson (84), McKenna Ralston (88) and Cassidy Rawls (95) completed UMHB’s scores.

Carnegie Mellon’s Charlotte Simpson fired an even-par 73 to seize the individual lead, and three players carded rounds of 2 over.
