TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - Sophomore Hadley Jennings (Trenton, Mo.) fired an opening-round 77 to direct the efforts of the Drake women's golf team in first-day action at the State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Championship hosted by Indiana State at the Country Club of Terre Haute on Sunday (April 22).

Jennings is tied for 15th, while as a team, the Bulldogs turned in a strong finish on the back nine to card a 323 to sit eighth among the 10 competing teams.

"We got off to a rough start on the front nine as we battled a little bit of nerves, but we were able show improvement coming down the stretch, Drake head coach Leanne Smith commented.  "Hadley (Jennings) played really well and I'm looking forward to her and the rest of the team coming back tomorrow with strong efforts."

Junior Chelsey Falk (Glenwood, Minn.) and freshman Danielle Brooks (Red Wing, Minn.) each shot an 81 to situate themselves in a tie for 32nd-place.

Firing scores of 84 and 88, to stand tied for 41st- and 46th-place, respectively, were seniors Paige Menze (Oxbow, N.D.) and Christy Wittmer (Hampton, Iowa).

The Bulldogs are scheduled for a 9:30 a.m. CT tee time for Monday's (April 23) second round.

DRAKE RESULTS: Hadley Jennings 77 (77/T-15th), Chelsey Falk 81 (81/T-32nd), Danielle Brooks 81 (81/T-32nd), Paige Menze 84 (84/T-41st) and Christy Wittmer 88 (88/T-46th).
