JEKYLL ISLAND, Ga. (April 14, 2014) – ETSU sophomore Vivienne Chin (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia) carded a team-best score of 2-over-par 74 to finish tied for ninth on the individual leaderboard during Monday’s opening round of the 25th Atlantic Sun Conference Women’s Golf Championships at the Jekyll Island Golf Club’s Pine Lakes Course.

As a team, the Buccaneers led for most of the day, but unfortunately for Chin and her teammates, the squad combined to post eight bogeys and a double bogey over the final four holes of the round,and ultimately finished the day in third place on the team leaderboard. The 45th-ranked Bucs finished with a round of 12-over-par 300 and are currently six strokes back of the lead.

Mercer currently leads the event at 6-over-par 294, enjoying a three-stroke advantage over second-place Kennesaw State at 297. Individually, Kennesaw State’s Kaew Preamchuen and Jacksonville’s Jessica Welch are tied for the lead after posting rounds of 1-under 71.

Along with Chin’s efforts, other ETSU results included a tie for 12th by both senior Lourdes Lopez (Cadiz, Spain) and junior Gabriella Wahl (Heidenheim, Germany) after rounds of 3-over-par 75, while freshman Linda Dobele (Ogre, Latvia) finished tied for 18th with a round of 76.

Second round play at the A-Sun Championship is set for Tuesday and fans can follow live at Golfstat.com, or check out the A-Sun's championship coverage each day on the Women's Golf Championship page at atlanticsun.org. Third round play is scheduled for Wednesday.
