Eagles Compete In NCAA Championships

HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla.—Eastern Women’s Golf completed day one of the NCAA Championships on Tuesday at Mission Inn Resort.

The Eagles finished with a 402 after the first round on the 5,844-yard par-72 El Campeon course, a course that claims to “test you like no other course in Florida.”

Kaleigh Boreman led the Eagles with a 94 (+22) and Florida-native Bianca Scrimali followed close behind with a 96. Eastern’s Sarah Hart, Sarah Webb and Kearby Benak each shot 106.

Eagles’ head coach Jason Badecki related that the NCAA Championship experience is great for the team, but that there are also some nerves to deal with when playing at this level for the first time. “This experience is awesome; everything is first-class,” he said. “There were definitely first-day nerves playing on this big-time stage. It’s a tough course too and you’ve got to know your spots.”

Badecki noted that there were several peninsular greens and water hazards that can be intimidating. But, he added that by getting the chance to play this same course for all four rounds, their scores should improve as they better figure out how to play the intricacies of the course.

The greens played slower than what Badecki was expecting. He said they were still somewhat forgiving, but he expects that they may play a little faster with some rain as the week progresses.

The Eagles were the first to tee off Tuesday morning with a 7:45 a.m. tee time. On Wednesday, they will have to deal more with the Florida afternoon heat and humidity. They will be the last tee time, starting at 1:05 p.m. Tomorrow’s forecast is a high of 86 degrees with 72 percent humidity and a 50 percent chance of thunderstorms.
