She finished with a one-under 69 behind a strong front nine, which featured three birdies and one bogey. Senior Emily Staples followed at one-over 71 with three birdies herself. 

Two Tigers finished with scores of 74 on the day, Winnie Ng, and Fleur van Beek, while Ffion Tynan finished day one with 77 to round out the total team score of eight-over (288).
