Five-time TranSouth Athletic Conference champion Trevecca Nazarene is one of 28 teams in Rapid City for the 15th Annual NAIA Women's Golf National Championships.
 
Trevecca posted a team total of 339 in the opening round and are in 22nd place overall. Individually, Betsy Beaver posted the top Trojan round with an 80 and is in 46th place. Ashley Birdwell is in 78th place with an 83. Alyssa Moe (87) and Brooke Dillehay (89) are the other two Trojan golfers competing.
 
Trevecca coach Michael Johnson is pleased with his teams first-ever first round performance on the national stage, "Under the circumstances, it was a reasonably good day for our team. We didn't play great, but we didn't shoot ourselves out of the tournament."
 
"For our first experience on this stage, I'm hpapy with the team's mindset and we're looking forward to the oppportunity we've given ourselves for the remainder of the tournament. We're also hopeful for better than predicted weather in the morning."
 
During the time the Trojans are set to play, the weather prediction is for the temperatures to be from 45-51 degrees, winds in the 22-32 mph range, and a 20-35% chance of rain.
 
The tournament is being held at Meadowbrook Municipal Golf Course. The course is playing to a par of 72 over 6000 yards. There are 144 golfers competing.
 
California Baptist leads the tournament with a nine-over 297 and Adriana Nicolotti of Cal Baptist is the only player under part with a one-under 71.
