GREENSBORO, NC - North Carolina leads by six strokes (289, +5) after the first round of the 2011 ACC Women’s Golf Championship, being held Friday through Sunday, April 15-17, at Sedgefield Country Club, (Par 71, 6,185 yards), in Greensboro, N.C.

“This golf course (Sedgefield) is such a great golf course. Our team played very well all around the greens,” said North Carolina head coach Jan Mann. “They really were tough and I’m really proud of them,” said Mann.

Virginia and Florida State are tied for second (295, +11), Wake Forest is in fourth place (296, +12), Duke (297) fifth place, Maryland (298) sixth, Miami (302) seventh, NC State (311) eighth and Boston College (314) ninth place.

North Carolina was led by junior Allie White (Lancaster, Ohio) shooting a five-under par 66 to take the individual lead by four strokes over Wake Forest’s Cheyenne Woods (Jr., Phoenix, Ariz.), who shot a one-under 70. Since playing the championship at Sedgefield Country Club, starting in 2009, White’s 66 is tied with the low score that Natalie Sheary shot in the first round of the 2009 ACC Championship at Sedgefield. Florida State’s Kristin Tamulis owns the low round score of 65 which she shot in her final round in 2003 at Salem Glen Country Club in Clemmons, N.C.

North Carolina’s Katherine Perry (Fr., Cary, N.C.), Maryland’s Jessie Hollandsworth (Jr., Floyd, Va.) and Wake Forest’s Natalie Sheary (Sr., West Hartford, Conn.) are tied for third place at even par 71.
