TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The No. 15 University of Notre Dame women's golf team concluded the first round of the Match-Up Invitational Friday afternoon, placing eighth after firing a 12-over-par 300 at the Southwood Golf Club's par-72 (7,172 yards) course.

"We got out to a rough start today and we played a little bit more sloppy than we usually do, but tomorrow is a new day and the ladies are excited to get back out and put some good numbers on the board," said head coach Susan Holt.

Georgia currently leads the field of 12 teams with a two-over-par 290. Bulldog Rocio Sanchez Lobato leads the 64 competitors with a six-under par 66. Sanchez Lobato's score today is a career best round and is just the second time the sophomore has broken 70.

Weaver's score today is the eighth time she has fired even par or better through the five tournaments she has played in. Weaver additionally ties freshman Talia Campbell (Dallas, Texas) with two eagles on the year. Weaver made eagle on a par four measuring a distance of 288 yards. Weaver is tied for third in par four scoring through the first eighteen holes, averaging a 3.90.
