On a day where Ashland University's women's golf team paced the nine-team field on Day 1 of the Saginaw Valley State Fall Invitational, sophomore Krystal Hu's round stood out the most.
Saturday (Sept. 23) at Bay City Country Club in Bay City, Mich., Hu fired an opening-round four-under-par 68 to lift the Eagles to a team total of 298. Hu leads after the first day of play by two shots over Ferris State's Baylee Thompson (70).
Hu's round is tied for the second-best in Ashland program history, behind only Ali Green's 67 in the 2016 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championship.
As a team, Ashland's 298 also is tied for the second-best mark in Eagle history, trailing just the 290 put up at the Pioneer Invitational during the 2014-15 campaign.
In the team standings, Ashland leads Northwood (305) by seven strokes. Wayne State (307) is in third place.
UP NEXT: Day 2 of the SVSU Fall Invitational on Sunday (Sept. 24).
