Top-ranked Nova Southeastern is a shot back (614) with scores of 305-309 while fourth-ranked Rollins is eight off the pace with a score of 621 (311-310).

Goeun Lee of Saint Leo matched Audette's opening round 72 and shot a 77 in the afternoon to sit a shot back with 149 strokes.

Mitsuki Katahira of Daytona State was 12th after a first round 77, but climbed into a tie for third with Nova Southeastern's Abby Gittings by days end as both golfers sit with 150 strokes.
