HOUSTON – It was a record breaking day for Williams women's golf today at Bay Oaks Country Club on Thursday.
Coach Tomas Adalsteinsson's team finished its third round at the NCAA DIII Championships just 6 shots over par.
"Today's round of 294 is our lowest round ever in the NCAA Championship, and the first and only round so far under 300,"  Adalsteinsson said.
Williams started on the first tee and it went right to work and made the turn at one under. Williams players posted seven birdies on the front nine and senior Jo Kim eagled the fifth hole.
"Jo hit a very long drive over water on the par 5, 5th hole,"  Adalsteinsson said. "She only had about 145 yards to the hole on her second shot and with her 7 iron put it to about 15 feet. Fairly straight putt in the middle of the cup for eagle."
Kim finished the front nine 3-under par. Sophomore Tianyi Zhuang was one under on the front, while Malini Rudra was even par, Catalin Yturralde was two over par and 
Olivia White was three over par.
Kim led Williams on the day, finishing at even par 972). Malini Rudra was one over par, Tianyi Zhuang was two over par and Catalin Yturralde came in three over par and Olivia White had an uncharacteristic 14 over par day. 
""The team did a great job putting the ball in the right spots today,"  Adalsteinsson said. "It's possible to attack some holes and seek birdies, while on others you need to be disciplined and strategic. It was so fun to see how determined the team was to make the most out of today. Tomorrow we get one more chance to compete as a team and play our best golf."
