LeMarr Leads the Way for Lumberjack Golf

SEDONA, Ariz. - Northern Arizona University's women's golf team hosted day one of the Red Rocks Invitational at the Oak Creek Country Club. The Lumberjacks finished the day in fourth place led by newcomer Jacquie LeMarr's record-breaking performance.

"Overall it was a good performance," said head coach Brad Bedortha. "The scores are actually a lot better than I expected them to be so we really had some nice scores posted."

LeMarr shot a round of 70 two under par, good for first place in the tournament. Lemarr's performance was also good for the lowest in the history of the Red Rocks Invitational. Previous low was 71 which was held by a number of athletes who were tied for the record.

"I think for me today it was about confidence," said LeMarr. "I was a lot slower with my decision making; I just played my game; didn't worry about the rain or anything else just focused on my shots."

Behind LeMarr was senior Kaitlen Parsons who shot a round of 73 one over par. Parsons was able to put together a strong round even after battling through the frustration of some missed puts.

"Kaitlen played well," said Bedortha. "She got a little flustered after missing some shots but she was able to focus in and put together a strong round."

Also contributing for the Lumberjacks was Susana Mejia (80), Savana Bezdicek (82) and Brittany McKee (85). The team will finish up play tomorrow with a shotgun of 9:00 a.m.

Notes: Playing as individuals JoAnn Sottile (81), Melissa Olson (84) and Laura Jabczenski (86).
