The Wildcats are locked in a tie for second place in the tournament, trailing the leader Tulane by four strokes.
"Overall I think we got off to a solid start today," head coach Golda Johansson Borst said. "This golf course sets up to our strengths and I look for us to take advantage of that in the next two days. We have a very talented group and I look forward to seeing what tomorrow has in store for us!"
Senior Ashleigh Albrecht led the way for Kentucky, turning in scorecard of 1-under-par 71. The Murrieta, Calif. native birdied four holes, including three on the front nine, placing her in a tie for third overall, just two shots off the leader.
