SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The Ball State women's golf team is just two shots off the lead after 18 holes at the SCU Colby Invitational.

Paced by Jenna Hague's 2-over par round of 72, the Cardinals carded a team score of 303 in Monday's opening round to trail only day-one leader UC Riverside (301).

The Cardinals, coming off their second victory of the season and playing their final fall event, are four shots ahead of third-place Santa Clara (307) and 10 shots clear of fourth-place Cal Poly (313).

Hague is part of a four-way tie for second place on the individual leaderboard, two strokes behind tournament leader Clariss Guce of Cal State Northridge.

The 36-hole tournament will conclude with the final round Tuesday on the par-70, 6,146-yard layout at Silver Creek Valley Country Club.

Ball State junior Meghan Perry, who posted her first collegiate tournament victory last week at The Preview, is tied for ninth place. The current Mid-American Conference Women's Golfer of the Week, Perry opened with a round of 5-over par 75.

Senior Autumn Duke turned in a 6-over par round of 76 to tie for 12th place in the field of 68 golfers on the tournament's first day.

Senior Zoe Camus opened with an 80 and sits in a tie for 27th, while junior Sarah Westaway rounded out the Cardinals lineup with a first-round 85.

The 11-team field at this week's event includes tournament host Santa Clara, Ball State, Cal Poly, Northern Colorado, Sacramento State, Cal State Northridge, UC Riverside, Seattle, Montana State, Cal State Bakersfield and IUPUI.
