BOULDER CITY, Nev. – After shooting an opening-round 5-over 293, the Baylor women’s golf team is in sixth place Monday at the UNLV Spring Invitational.

The Lady Bears are one shot behind fifth-place Texas Tech (4-over 292) and 12 shots back of tournament-leading UNLV (7-under 281). Idaho is in second place at 3-under 285, while Ball State and Missouri are both tied for third at 1-over 289.

Junior Lene Hafsten-Morch carded her lowest round of the season with a 2-under 70, finishing the first round in a tie for eighth place. Hafsten-Morch’s 18-hole score of 70 was her first sub-par round this season and lowest since carding a second-round 67 at the 2008 Ptarmigan/Ram Fall Classic. Her scorecard featured three birdies through the first eight holes. Hafsten-Morch is one shot out of fourth place and five shots behind leader Kayla Mortellaro (7-under 65) of Idaho.
