NORMAN, O.K. –  In her 2017 debut, sophomore Athena Yang paced the Mississippi State women’s golf team in the first round of the Schooner Fall Classic by firing a 2-over 71 Saturday.
 
Her score helped the Bulldogs to a 17-over 301 in opening-round play at Belmar Golf Club. 
 
Yang overcame a double bogey on her opening hole, adding a birdie on No. 12 before parring the final six holes of her front nine. Yang added two more birdies to her scorecard on the back nine en route to tying for 34th on the day. 
 
“When I doubled my first hole, I just told myself that there was still a lot of golf to play and many more holes, so I can’t let that one shake me,” Yang said. “I feel like we are all working really hard out here. I’m just going to continue to be grateful for every day and commit to every shot.” 
 
Behind Yang was freshman Aubree Jones, who followed a stellar debut earlier this month with a 75 on Saturday that tied her for 50th. 
 
Clara Moyano and Teri Doss notched a 76 and 78, respectively. 
 
In her first tournament since the 2015 season, Blaise Carabello was able to card a 77 behind three birdies, tying Yang for most birdies on the day. 
 
A bright spot for the Bulldogs came from Kendall Wisenbaker, who is competing in the event as an individual. Wisenbaker shook off a tough start to her front nine with three consecutive birdies. She finished the day with a 71 to tie for 18th overall. 
 
The Bulldogs tee off the second round at 8 a.m. on Sunday.
