    FRENCH LICK, Ind. - The Indiana women's golf team shot a 310 on day one of the 2013 Big Ten Women's Golf Championships, good for eighth place in the 12-team field. The 54-hole event is taking place on the Donald Ross Course at French Lick Resort in French Lick, Ind.

    Northwestern leads the field with a 1-under 287, with Purdue in second (293), Penn State third (296), Ohio State fourth (301) and Michigan State (303) rounding out the top five. The Hoosiers trail sixth-place team Wisconsin by just five strokes.

    Senior Rosie Davies and graduate student Kristen Schelling led the way in round one for IU with both carding a 4-over 76, putting them tied for 22nd. Davies started the day strong and was at even par through 11 holes thanks to a birdie on the par-4 10th hole. After a bogey on 12 she came back with her second birdie of the day, posting a four on the par-5 14th hole. She stayed at even par through 15 but stumbled on the last three with bogeys on 16 and 17, and a double bogey on 18. Schelling also had a pair of birdies for the round, going one under on the par-3 fourth hole to sit at +1. She had back-to-back bogeys on seven and eight but came up with her second birdie of the day on the par-4 11th hole. She would par six of the remaining seven holes in the round, with the only blemish a double bogey on 14.

    Sophomore Elizabeth Tong is tied for 34th with a 6-over 78. Tong was 4-over par after the first nine holes and bogeyed 10 and 11 to sit at +6. Pars on 12 and 13 were followed by a bogey on 14, but she would go -1 over the final four holes, including her lone birdie of the day on the par-4 18th hole.

    Senior Kate Coons and freshman Marissa DeCola sit tied for 51st with scores of 80 (+8). Coons tallied par on six of the first nine holes and went +5 to close the round, including a double bogey on 11. DeCola had six pars on the front nine, as well as a birdie on the par-5 seventh hole, but struggled on two and three with double bogeys on each. She carded five-straight bogeys after making the turned but finished the day with pars on each of the final four holes.

    Senior Pamela Burneski was 15 over for the round, finishing with a 87 to sit at tied for 70th. Burneski added four strokes to her score with an eight on the par-4 third hole, and also had an eight on the par-4 18th hole. She also added a triple bogey on four and a double bogey on seven. Despite her troubles, Burneski led the Hoosiers with a tally of three birdies posting a four on the par-5 fifth hole, a three on the par-4 ninth hole and a four on the par-5 14th hole.

    All 12 teams are back in action Saturday with 18 holes of play, with Indiana teeing off from the 10th hole beginning at 9 a.m. ET.
