SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Mount Olive College freshman Virginia Lane placed fourth out of 74 golfers with a 3-over-par 75 during opening-round play of the Armstrong Pirate Women's Invitational on Monday.

MOC's Julie Loennechen and Emelie Andersson each shot a 39 over the first nine holes. Loennechen is in a tie for 24th after an 82 on Monday. Andersson is three strokes behind at 85, good enough for 39th.

Rounding out the scoring for the Trojans was Emy Ohling (91) in 55th and Sarah Baniszewski (5102) in 68th.

The Trojans are eighth in the team-title chase with a 333.

The 36-hole tournament concludes today at Savannah Quarters Golf Club.
