State golf: Countryside's Glennie in lead after Day 1

Countryside senior Madison Glennie had to win a playoff at the region tournament two weeks ago to earn the second individual spot at the Class 3A state tournament.

Tuesday, she proved she belongs.

Glennie shot even-par 72 on the Mission Inn Resort and Spa's Las Colinas course and has a one-shot lead over three golfers, including Freedom's Terese Romeo. Glennie had two bogeys and two birdies during her round.

"I had a game plan before the round to play smart and try to make pars," Glennie said. "I made par on the first hole and just settled down and went from there. I thought it was a really good round. There was a lot of wind so I didn't take many chances. And I putted great."

Glennie did not qualify for the state tournament last season. As a sophomore she finished tied for 20th and tied for 29th as a freshman.

Glennie, who will attend Drake University on a golf scholarship, hopes to be able to duplicate her opening round today.

"I've just got to stay in my zone," she said. "That's what I did real well today."

Viera led the girls team tournament with 325, four shots ahead of Cypress Bay.

In the boys Class 3A tournament at the Mission Inn's El Campeon Course, Countryside senior Jay Dixon shot 12-over 84 and was tied for 66th. Palm Harbor University senior Sean Fromme shot 13-over 85. Ramsey Touchberry led the tournament with 4-under 68, and his Lakewood Ranch team also shot 298 for the lead. Newsome (309) was tied for third with Lake Mary.
