(Sept. 26, 2010) - Led by the play of three newcomers, the ETSU women's golf team finished tied for fourth during first round action Sunday in the UNCG Starmount Forest Fall Classic at the Bryan Park Golf Club's Players Course.
Junior college transfer Lauren Smith (Cramlington, England) led the way for the Buccaneers with a 4-over-par 76 to finish 16th on the individual leaderboard. Meanwhile, true freshmen Sian Evans (Gillingham, England) and Larissa Steinfeldt (Eschweiler, Germany) both finished tied for 17th at 5-over 77.
