Clemson, S.C.—Ivy Shepherd shot a two-under par 69 and Alice Hewson scored a one-under 70 to lead Clemson to a 286 team score. The Tigers stand in fifth-place at the 15-team Schooner Fall Classic at the University of Oklahoma.

Shepherd fired off a two-under par 69 in the opening round of the Schooner Fall Classic. The freshman had five birdies and three bogeys to lead the Tigers.
