    COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Notre Dame women's golf team stands in 12th place out of 15 teams following first-day action Saturday at the Ohio State Invitational.

    The three-round tournament concludes with 18 holes on Sunday at the par-72, 6,037-yard OSU Scarlet Golf Course.

    The Irish posted matching rounds of 332 on Saturday for a 664 total, just two strokes behind Winthrop. The host Buckeyes (304-297) hold a commanding 20-stroke lead over second-place Northwestern heading into the final round.

    Sophomore Mary Klein led the Irish on Saturday with rounds of 79-81, good for a share of 22nd in the 90-player field. Sophomores Shane Smith (89-84) and Danielle Villarosa (86-83) also rank among the top 60 individuals, with junior captain Andrea Klee (87-84), freshman Kristin McMurtrie (89-85) and junior Beth Cooper (91-86) rounding out the Irish six-player contingent.
