LAKELAND, Fla. – Palm Beach Atlantic finished 16th at the Lady Moc Classic this week, posting rounds of 336, 334, and 333. The tournament was won by Barry University, who's final round 302 was good enough to hold off a Saint Leo team that finished second. The Sailfish will return to action on Mar. 13-14 at the Peggy Kirk Bell Invitational in Orlando, Fla.

Day One: Palm Beach Atlantic women’s golf opened up play Monday at the Lady Moc Classic, which is hosted annually by Florida Southern College.

The tournament contains a very tough field, which includes every team in the always tough Sunshine State Conference.
The Sailfish are in 16th position out of 18 teams competing after day one of the event, with three of the five Sailfish golfers improving their first round scores in the afternoon round today. Victoria Hays led PBA on Monday, as she posted rounds of 83 and 81 on the par-72 course. Hays was followed by Taylor Heinz, who shot a first round of 80, which was the lowest Sailfish round of the day, and followed it up with a second round of 85.
Taylor Sukmana opened up with a solid round of 82, and shot 87 in her second round on Monday. The biggest improvement between rounds one and two in the entire field came from Sailfish golfer Alex Dowd, who opened up with a 97 and came back out in the afternoon to shoot 81, a 16 stroke improvement. The final Sailfish golfer of the day was Hailey Farmer, who shot rounds of 91 and 88.
The ‘Fish will close out the tournament, which is currently being led by Barry University, on Tuesday afternoon with a third and final 18 holes. Stay tuned for final tournament results upon completion of tomorrow’s round.
