Maryville, MO - The Graceland men and women's golf teams are hosting the two day Graceland Invitational at Mozingo Lake Golf Course.
The Graceland men's team had a promising afternoon shooting a 305 team score to finish in second place out of a field of 14 for day one.
The GU women's squad only competed as individuals as they did not have enough members to make up a team.
For the men Lindenwood-Belleville University sits in the top spot in the tournament with a score 302.
Carter Mallett of Central College leads the individuals with a 72.
Senior Josh Waite had the low score for the Yellowjackets, finishing with a 75 to tie for fourth place.
For the women Waldorf College sits at the top with a score of 352 for day one.
Waldorf's Fernada Valdes leads the individuals with a score of 79.
Senior Alexis Miller led the Yellowjackets with a score of 92 to tie for 15th place.
"Good first day for the men," said Head Coach Kevin Brunner. "Put us in a position to win the event. Weather wise, could be a rainy day tomorrow so conditions will be tough. Women played okay but still don't have four to score as a team. Alexis played a good round."
The Yellowjackets will wrap the Graceland Invitational tomorrow.
