ELGIN, S.C. --- The Tusculum women's golf team fired an opening round score of 316 and are in second place after day one of the 2018 South Atlantic Conference Championship.  The three-day, 54-hole tournament is being held at The Members Club at Woodcreek.                       

The Pioneers are four shots out of the lead currently held by 15th-ranked Wingate who carded a team score of 312.

Tusculum was paced by junior Cydney Murrell's three-over par score of 75 and shares the first round lead with Cameryn Smith of Queens.
