POINT CLEAR, Ala. – Georgia captured the 5th Women's Southeastern Challenge Match, hosted by Alabama at Lakewood Golf Club, with 26.5 points, while Florida finished six points behind at 20.5 points, and Alabama earned 16 points.

Due to approaching darkness, the afternoon Foursomes matches were reduced to nine-holes where Florida fought back to pick up eight points. The teams of Heather Wall/Ashley Zagers, Diane Chancellor/Kathy Glennon, and Lauren Miller/Kaitlyn Schroeder earned two points each for the team to trail Georgia by three points. Day one finished with Georgia at the top with 12.5 points, Florida finished with 9.5 points, and Alabama with 5 points.

Florida finished with 11 points in the singles matches, six of those points came from Ashley Zagers, Chloe Kovelesky, and Susan Temple who defeated both Georgia and Alabama.
