After one day of play, the Arizona women’s golf team is in sixth place at the Pacific 10 Conference Championship — 11 strokes behind the nation’s No. 1 team, ASU — in Eugene, Ore.

The Wildcats, who sit at 5-over-par, failed to have a player shoot below 1-over-par. Arizona sophomores Nikki Koller and Isabella Boineau and freshman Sherlyn Popelka all sit at 1-over-par.

Senior Alejandra Llaneza shot 2-over-par, and sophomore Margarita Ramos shot a 4-over-par 76.

Joanne Lee of California is the individual leader after round one at 5-under-par. Koller, Boineau and Popelka are all in a tie for 15th, with Llaneza in 25th and Ramos in 31st.

USC, UCLA, California and host University of Oregon round out the top-5. The second round is today, with the third and final round on Wednesday.
