NEW ORLEANS – University of Houston senior Megan Thothong fired a 1-under 71 on Sunday to lead the Cougars during the First Round of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Championship at English Turn Golf & Country Club.

As a team, the Cougars were tied with LSU for 12th with a score of 298 in a tournament field, which featured 10 top-50 programs.

Thothong started her day off No. 1 on the 6,239-yard, par-72 course with three straight pars before sinking her first birdie of the day on the 311-yard, par-4 fourth hole. She drained another birdie two holes later but suffered a double bogey on No. 9 to move back to even par.

After seven straight pars to open her back nine, the Dallas native made her third and final birdie of the day on the 157-yard, par-3 17th hole to join a group in a tie for ninth after the first day.

Junior Leonie Harm and sophomore Amanda Elich were tied for 35th after posting 75s, while senior Courtney Tibiletti was tied for 57th at 77. Senior Allie Andersen was tied for 84th at 82.

Florida held the first-day team lead with a score of 5-under 283. Michigan State stood in second at 284 with North Carolina (292), USC (293), NC State (294) and UCF (294) rounding out the top-six leaders.
