PROVO, Utah — No. 27 BYU women's golf finished the first round of the 2017 West Coast Conference Golf Championships in second place on Thursday at the par-72 Riverside Country Club golf course.

"We started off the day really well," BYU head coach Carrie Roberts said. "We then struggled through the middle of the round. We will need to clean a few things up for tomorrow."

BYU battled back and forth with No. 36 Pepperdine through the first 18 holes of play. The Waves lead the Cougars by five strokes going into round two on Friday. BYU carded +8 as a team in Thursday's first round, and Pepperdine shot +3.

Alexandra White and Rose Huang led the Cougars, both firing 1-over rounds. White birdied five holes on Thursday, while Huang birdied three. White and Huang are tied for second place after round one.

Kendra Dalton and Brooklyn Hocker are tied for 12th place. The duo both fired 75s to shoot 3-over on the day. Lauren Atkinson carded a 76 on Thursday to tie for 14th place individually.

BYU women's golf will continue second round play in the 2017 WCC Championships on Friday. Groupings will tee off at 8:50 a.m. MDT. The 2017 Championships are free and open to the public.
