Women's golf: Schmitt takes day one lead, Martinson still in the hunt

-A A +A
By The Staff

Things are tight at the top of the leaderboard following day one of the Los Alamos City Championship women’s tournament with a pair of tournament veterans duking it out for the top spot.

Not far behind, however, are three players within three shots of the lead heading into the second day of the two-day event.

Barbara Schmitt and defending champion Tami Martinson are neck-and-neck heading into today’s final round of the Los Alamos City Championship. Schmitt holds a 1-stroke advantage after finishing with an 84 Saturday, while Martinson is right behind her with an 85.

Tee-off for the second day of the City championship is scheduled for 8:30 a.m.

While Schmitt and Martinson are poised to duke it out for the title today, they will have to keep an eye behind them, however, as three other players, Ellen Stallings, Jordan Hanson and Alicia Herrera, are sitting on 87s, while another player, Anna Swertfeger, is just a stroke behind them.

One player that has a considerable amount of ground to make up heading into today’s play is 18-time City champion Ev Griggs. Griggs, just off her victory earlier this month at the Atomic City Invitational, managed just a 92 Saturday.
