May 29, 2013 Victoria, BC (ISN) – The University of Victoria Vikes women’s golf team are on a quick turn around after last week’s 13th place finish at the NAIA national championship.

Vikes senior and last year’s Canadian University/College national championship runner up Megan Woodland has found her form as she was the co-lead after the opening round of this year’s Canadian championship hosted at Club de golf Val des Lacs in Ste-Sophie, Que.

The Université de Montréal Carabins lead the women’s division, as Woodland and Carabins’ Caroline Ciot were on top of the individual leader board after a 1-over 72 score.

“It was great out there today, I struggled a bit on the greens, I just couldn’t really get anything going,” said Woodland. “I left a lot of putts short but I was hitting the ball really consistently. My fairways and greens stats were pretty solid today.”

The Vikes finished round one with a team score of 13-over 226, three strokes back of leaders the Carabins. Woodland was 1-over on the front nine and even on the back and tallied two birdies throughout the day. Meanwhile, Brynn Tomie was finding her stride with a round one score of 3-over 74, draining six birdies on the day, including four on the back nine.

Not far behind are Michaela Abey and Emily Nicol who tallied 9-over 80 on round one to tie for 16th, while Michaela Misener was 10-over 81.
