Hailee Cooper will lead off for Texas against Auburn (Patrick Meredith / Texas Athletics)
In tornado alley, the first round of match play at the NCAA Women’s Championship is going off under grey skies with fingers crossed for a quick finish. After a nearly hour-long weather delay in Monday’s third and final round of stroke play, a handful of players had to come back on Tuesday morning and finish just to set the match-play bracket.
Three matches remain to crown a champion, and with a dicey Tuesday forecast looming.
Auburn played its final three holes on Tuesday in 1 over par to take the eighth and final spot. Texas, Duke and USC maintained their spots as the Nos. 1, 2 and 3. Coaches set their lineups soon after, and matches started at 8 a.m. CT.
