Lady Buc golfer fires best round of any NCAA player this year
GREENVILLE, N.C. (May 6, 2010) – ETSU sophomore Nina Muehl (Vienna, Austria) fired a school-record round of 8-under-par 64 and the Buccaneers’ women’s golf team also set a school mark with a team score of 3-under 285 during first round action Thursday in the NCAA East Regional hosted by East Carolina at the Ironwood Country Club.



Muehl, whose 64 was the single lowest round carded in all of Division I golf this year, bested the previous ETSU single-round record of 67 set by senior teammate Laura Jansone (Jurmala, Latvia) back in 2008 and helped power the 48th-ranked Buccaneers to a tie for sixth on the team leaderboard. The team is now in contention for a spot in the NCAA Championships later this month, as the top eight teams in the regional earn a spot in the championships beginning May 18 in Wilmington, N.C.



Muehl currently leads a trio of players by three strokes on the individual leaderboard, while the Bucs are tied for sixth with two other teams and just five strokes out of first.



“I told the girls last night that nobody expects us to qualify for nationals because we’re the 17th seed,” said ETSU head coach Stefanie Shelton, whose team finished ahead of 10 teams with higher rankings. “But that doesn’t mean we can’t believe in our team, and they came out and proved it today. Nina’s play was just unbelievable. I’m so proud of the way she played and handled her nerves.”



Muehl’s bogey-free round included eight birdies and 10 pars, a remarkable day by any measure, but especially impressive coming on such a pressure-packed stage. Even so, the sophomore had few words to express the day even after reflecting on the round for a few moments.



“I just had the day of my life out there,” Muehl said. “It was amazing. It was just one of those days where everything was going my way.”



Along with Muehl, Jansone finished tied for 20th at 1-under 71, while senior Kennie Leigh Eisenhower (Newport) and sophomore Mayte Vizcarrondo (Cadiz, Spain) finished tied for 67th after posting rounds of 3-over-par 75.



Second and third round action will continue on Friday and Saturday. Live scoring is available at Golfstat.com, and ETSUBucs.com will provide a full recap following each day’s play.

Can Muehl qualify for the NCAA finals as an individual if the team doesn't make it? If so how high does she have to finish?

Yes she can, the top two individuals in each region not on an advancing team will be sent to the National Championship.

In that case Muehl still stands a chance to transfer as an individual after shooting +1 today. Some players still on the course could take that spot away from her.

The team finished well back of the final team transfer spot after shooting +26 today.
