The Lady Bears are currently in a six-way tie for 13th place overall after the first 18 holes of play at the ASU Karsten Golf Course. Host-school and No. 1 ranked Arizona State leads all teams after day one as the Sun Devils fired a first-day 273, 15 shots better than the three teams tied for second place.
