Gators 20th after Day 1 of NCAA women's golf

Florida was in 20th place, 17 strokes out of the lead, after one round of the 24-team NCAA women's golf championships Tuesday in Albuquerque, N.M. The Gators shot 13-over-par 301.

Hannah Yun, a 16-year-old freshman, shot 1-over 73 to lead UF. Florida State's Caroline Westrup, playing as an individual, shot 72 and was tied for 15th. Southern California (284) led.

"We didn't have a good round," Gators coach Jill Briles-Hinton told the school Web site. "The girls were ready, but I think that they came out a little bit too worked up and too excited. They did get settled down, but it just never clicked for them."

    Blogs

    INF Trevor Plouffe didn't do much with the opportunity the Rays gave him, and time ran out Tuesday when he was designated for assignment after the game.

    Plouffe hit just .178, with one homer and two RBIs, in 31 games for the Rays, his primary playing time from starting at first or third against lefties.

  3. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

    The Heater

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.

  5. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.
