Rio Mar, Puerto Rico - The Nebraska women's golf team got its spring off to a slow start in the first round at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic on Sunday morning.

The Huskers shot a 326 in the opening round, led by junior Katelyn Wright's 79 over the first 18 holes on the 6,191-yard layout of the The River Course at the Rio Mar Beach Resort. Wright's first round put her in a tie for 62nd in an 84-player field, while the Huskers were in 15th as a team.

Redshirt freshman Jackie O'Doherty managed an 80 (T67th), while fellow redshirt freshman Morgan Smejkal added an 83 (76th). Junior Steffi Neisen settled for an 84 (T77th), while true freshman Cassie Deeg opened with an 85 (T79th).

No. 12 Arkansas leads the team standings after 18 holes following an opening-round 291. No. 6 Alabama and TCU are tied for second at 293. The next eight teams in the standings are all ranked among the top 35 in the nation, including No. 20 Texas Tech (296), No. 25 Iowa State (299), No. 24 Northwestern (300),  No. 28 Kentucky (301), the hosts from No. 19 Purdue (303), No. 21 NC State (304), No. 32 SMU (305) and No. 29 Auburn (306) . Kent State (312), Michigan (313), No. 36 Indiana (314) and Nebraska round out the tournament field.
