OXFORD, Miss. - Marissa Steen posted a career-high six birdies and carded an opening-round 71 to lead Memphis on the first day of the Rebel Intercollegiate.

The Lady Tigers carded a team score of 309 in the first round and are currently tied for 13th position with Murray State.
"The course's elevation gave the team some problems," Harrelson said. "But, I'm proud of the way we held it together, and we'll look to improve tomorrow."
Julia Hodgson turned in a 76 on Friday and is tied for 31st, while Kathleen Glavin's 79 gave her a share of 60th position. Ashley Kees posted an 83 in the first-round and is tied for 88th position. Alex Aläng was disqualified.
Cross-state foe Tennessee leads the event after turning in a team score of 290 (+2) in the first round. Tournament-host Ole Miss, Maryland, and Coastal Carolina are all tie for second after posting 298's.
