The Gators sit firmly in the middle of the pack after one round of play at Stanford Golf Club.

The Florida women’s golf team found itself in a tie for eighth with Northwestern after the team shot a 6-over-par 290 Monday. 

Junior Clara Manzalini led the way for Florida. She served as a bright spot in an otherwise lackluster day for UF and was the only Gator to break par. The Milan, Italy native tallied a team-high five birdies on the day and wrapped up her round with a 2-under-par 69. Mazalini is in a tie for seventh on the individual leaderboard. 

Sophomore Annabell Fuller put together a solid first half of her round and entered the back nine only 1-over-par. However, double bogeys on hole 13 and 16 plagued her afternoon. She finished with a 5-over-par 76 and sits in a tie for 62nd place. 

Maisie Filler, who earned a spot on the Southeastern Conference’s All-Freshman team, turned in an even-par round to finish as the second-lowest Gator. The freshman cracked the top-20 individually and is in a tie for 17th. Senior Addie Baggarly and sophomore Marina Escobar both posted 4-over-par 75s and found themselves outside the top-50 in a tie for 53rd. 

The hosting Stanford Cardinal are threatening to turn the region into a runaway. They shot 12-under-par as a team to build a 10-stroke lead over second place Virginia Tech. 

Still in contention for a coveted top-six finish, the Gators need to get hot over the last two days of competition to move on to the NCAA Championship. 

The Gators are scheduled to tee off day two at 11 a.m. eastern time. Live scoring will be available at golfstat.com
