CLARKSBURG, W.Va. -- Fairmont State sophomore Elizabeth Frederick turned in a solid 78 in the first round of the Falcon Fall Classic hosted by Sunny Croft Country Club Sunday afternoon. The Falcons shot a team score of 338 to place third in the five-team tournament.
Concord leads the tournament with a 314. WV Wesleyan turned in a 331, followed by Fairmont State's 338. West Liberty shot 348 and Glenville State had 404.
Frederick's 78 put her in third individually after the first day. Senior Nicole Smith shot a consistent 80 on the day and stands in fifth. Newcomers Danielle Davis, a Nicholas County graduate, and Cat Fiorini of Tucker County finished the day with a 86 and 94, respectively.
"I thought the girls did an outstanding job today," said Doug Comer, director of golf at Fairmont State. "Nicole and Elizabeth have been the core of the beginning of our success while the freshmen hopefully will take us to that level of success that we expect. Dani (Davis) and Cat (Fiorini) were a little nervous, as expected, but the two seemed to calm down and showed promise on the back nine. I am looking for them to post some good scores in the second round. If the duo can repeat what they have done in high school, I expect these two players to push for all-conference honors sooner than later."
The second round starts today with a 10 a.m. shotgun start. Patrons are encouraged to come and watch the event. Sunny Croft is located on Rt. 19 South in Clarksburg.
