    HOOVER, Ala. – LSU shot a 15-over-par 303 Friday to take the lead following the opening round at the 2013 Southeastern Conference Women’s Golf Championship at the Greystone Golf and Country Club.

    The second day of the 2013 SEC Women’s Golf Championship will begin at 10 a.m. CT Saturday. Admission is free and open to the public.

    The Tigers hold a one-shot lead over defending NCAA Champion Alabama, which shot a 16-over-par 304. Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi State and South Carolina all are tied for third with 18-over-par scores of 306.

    “It’s about trying to minimize mistakes,” LSU head coach Karen Bahnsen said. “We did make a few mistakes out there. It’s a tough course. There are a lot of tough pins out there, but there are going to be a lot of tough pins every day. It’s just keeping your mind there and fighting all the way to the end because you can’t give in to this golf course. You can’t because it is tough. I love it in that good courses require you to think the whole way around. We’ve just got to try to eliminate mental mistakes.

    “This team is fighters. That’s how we play. We don’t always start out right but this is one group that never gives up. That’s what we are going to do.”

    Kentucky’s Sarah Harris and Ole Miss’ Stani Schiavone are tied for the individual lead after the initial 18 holes, as each shot a 1-over-par 73 on Friday.

    The initial start of Friday’s opening round was delayed four hours due to inclement weather in the Hoover area overnight on Thursday and early Friday.
