BROUSSARD, La. - Darkness suspended play Monday at the 2013 Le Triomphe Collegiate Invitational, but through one round the Lamar women's golf team held a 1-stroke lead over two schools behind the play of senior Julie Aime and sophomore Nghi Ngo.
Not all scores were reported Monday evening, but Aime and Ngo were tied for the lead after carding identical 74s on the par-72, 6,366-yard Le Triomphe Golf and Country Club layout. The remainder of round two and the final round will be played Tuesday.
The Lady Cardinals, who are making their spring debut, shot a team total of 311 (+23) in round one to stand one stroke ahead of tournament host McNeese State and Florida Gulf Coast. South Alabama is fourth in the 16-team field after a 320, with Xavier and Houston Baptist tied for fifth at 321.
A pair of Southland Conference schools were in seventh and eighth with Central Arkansas shooting a 324 and Sam Houston State shooting a 326 to stand tied with Toledo. McLennan Community College and Chicago State are tied for 10th at 327.
McNeese's Lena Langergren and South Alabama's Khristen Golightly also shot 74 in the opening round to stand in a four-way tie for first.
