EL CERRITO, Calif. --- California Baptist University opened up competition at its first ever conference tournament Monday, sitting in sixth place after 18 holes of play at the PacWest Championship.

On a day that saw just four players shoot in the 70’s, CBU shot a 361 to finish ahead of Hawaii Pacific and Dominican.

“This is a beautiful, but brutally hard golf course,” said CBU Head Coach Lane Pace. “It was tough for anybody to go low out there especially with how firm these greens are. It’s very challenging, but now we’ve seen it and have one more day to make up some ground.”

Samantha Peters led the way for CBU, which had just four scores after suffering a disqualification on the day, shooting an 84. Peters currently sits in a tie for 11th individually.

“Other than a stretch of a few holes, Sammi played well today,” said Pace. “She did a good job managing the course. We suffered a setback losing Nicollette Gino’s score, but that happens. It’s something you have to deal with and forget about come tomorrow.”

Kirsten Keyser (88) and Katherine Pimpanit (90) each made it into the Top 30 individually and Kayla Jech shot a 99.

Grand Canyon and Academy of Art currently sit tied for the tournament lead at 325.
