    VALENCIA, Calif.—The University of Colorado women’s golf team is in 10th place after the first round of the 2013 Pac-12 Championships, which began here Monday at the Valencia Country Club. The Buffaloes shot a 23-over par round of 311.

    Top-ranked Southern California is in the lead after the first round, holding a 10-stroke advantage on the field as the only team under par after posting an 8-under par 280. No. 10 and host UCLA is in second at 2-over par 290 while No. 11 Washington is third at 5-over par 293. No. 12 Arizona State sits in fourth place at 7-over par 295 while No. 15 Stanford rounds out the top five 10-over par 298.

    The Pac-12 features six of the top 15 teams in the latest Golfstat rankings.

    “It wasn’t a great day today for the Buffs,” CU coach Anne Kelly said. “We seemed prepared after the practice round, but we didn’t perform at all like I know we can today. We will have to regroup and play a lot tougher tomorrow.”

    Junior Jenny Coleman led the way for Colorado in the first round, posting a 2-over par 74 in the first round and she is tied for 18th. Coleman was consistent throughout her round with one birdie and three bogeys all spaced evenly over her round. She is just two strokes out of the top five as there are 24 players who shot a 74 or better in the first round.

    Freshmen Alexis Keating and Allie Zech are tied for 42nd individually after each shooting 6-over par 78s in the first round. Keating was having a solid round and was 1-over par through eight holes with one birdie and a double bogey and then struggled making the turn and had a bit of a roller coaster back nine. She shot 4-over in a span of three holes from Nos. 9-11, rebounded with a birdie and then had three bogeys in her next five holes before ending her round with another birdie. Zech responded to a double bogey on No. 2 with a birdie on No. 4 to go back to 1-over par and then had three straight bogeys and a pair of pars to finish her front nine at 4-over. She shot a 2-over on the back nine with a birdie and three bogeys for her 78.

    Junior Kristin Coleman shot a 9-over par 81 to finish tied for 52nd while freshman Jamie Oleksiew shot an 11-over par 83 to finish in 55th place after the first round. Kristin Coleman joined her sister as the only two players not to score a double bogey or worse and finished her round with 10 bogeys and a birdie for her 81. Oleskiew was one of three Buffs with multiple birdies in the first round, coming in with two, but she struggled with a triple bogey and pair of double bogeys in her round.

    Southern California’s Sophia Popov shot a 6-under par 66 and leads the field by four strokes after the first round while her teammate, Annie Park, is in second place at 2-under par 70. Arizona State’s Emilie Alonso and UCLA’s Erynne Lee finished tied for third at 1-under par 71 while five players are tied for fifth place at even par 72, including a pair of Trojans.

    CU will be back in action Tuesday for the second round as Buffs will tee off on No. 10 between 10:10 and 10:42 a.m. MT.
