            GREENVILLE, N.C. (Oct. 20, 2006) - Freshman Laura Jansone (Jurmala, Latvia) matched her career best by firing a 1-under-par 71, leading the ETSU women's golf team in Friday's first round of the Lady Pirate Invitational hosted by East Carolina University at the Bradford Creek Golf Course.

 

            Jansone and three other players are currently tied for second on the individual leaderboard, just one stroke back of current leader Sara Hunt of Birmingham Southern. On the team leaderboard, Hunt's Birmingham Southern squad made it a sweep after posting a first round score of 288 to lead UCF by three strokes.

Along with Jansone, sophomore Maria Ringdahl (Oland, Sweden) is tied for 38th following a 76 in the first round, while sophomore Lucy Gould (Bargoed, Wales) and junior Natalia Giraldo (Cali, Colombia) are tied for 54th with 78s.
