Anna Moore led the Racers in round one with a 74 and a spot in fourth place, just three shots off the lead. Other MSU scores included Moa Folke in ninth place after a 75 and Linette Holmslykke in 14th place with a 77. Lucila Puente Rodriguex de Austria had a spot in 19th place on a score of 77. Raeysha Surendran was in 60th place after an 83.

Nadine Innes is in the event for the Racers as a solo player. Her 79 was tops among the five individuals in the event and 30th overall.

Ashley Sloup of Winthrop was the medalist leader as the only player under par with a 1-under-par 71.
