The ISU women’s golf team was led by the three “C’s” during the first round of the Stanford Intercollegiate.

Cajsa Persson, Celia Barquin and Chonlada Chayanun combined to shoot three-under-par en route to a two-over-par team total of 286, which has the Cyclones in a tie for sixth place and seven shots behind UCLA.

With a three-under-par round of 68, junior Cajsa Persson is tied for fourth place and posted her lowest round of the fall season by seven shots.

Her teammate, Barquin, picked up where she left off after tying for third place at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational on Oct. 14. The freshman posted a round of 69, also a personal-best, and is tied for sixth place.

Senior Chayanun shot 73 in what was an up-and-down day round that featured five birdies, five bogies and a double bogie. She is tied for 45th place out of 90 golfers.

The individual leaderboard is led by Bronte Law of UCLA, the No. 19 player in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings. She posted a six-under-par 65.

The No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 individuals, SooBin Kim of Washington, Annie Park of Southern California and Alison Lee of UCLA are also in the field. Kim is tied for sixth place and Park and Lee are tied for 17th.

The second of three rounds will begin Oct. 18 at 8:30 a.m. PST (10:30 a.m. CST) at Stanford Golf Course in Palo Alto, Calif.
