GERMANTOWN, Tenn. - Horned Frog sophomore Stacey Bieber fired a sub-par round for the first time in her career to help TCU establish a four stroke lead in the first day of the 2005 Conference USA Women's Golf Championship at the par-72, 6,178-yard Germantown Country Club. Her one-under par 71 has her one stroke behind USF's Fernanda Rivera. The Bulls and the Tulane Green Wave follow the Frogs at a tie for second.

The Horned Frogs have a four-stroke lead on the 10-team field after shooting a 294. Bieber stands in second place individually, one stroke ahead of Louisville's Adrienne White. Tulane's Alison Walshe, USF's Christina Jones and TCU's Elin Emanuelsson are each tied for fourth after shooting rounds of 73. Defending stroke play champion Liliana Alvarez is tied for seventh after carding a two-over 74.

Alvarez and Walshe have the Green Wave tied for second with the Bulls in the team standings after each team shot a 298. Southern Miss trails TCU by 15 strokes and is in fourth place, while Memphis rounds out the top five after carding a 311.

Senior D'Rae Ward and sophomore Camille Blackerby share 10th place with their first round three-over par 75s. Sophomore Catherine Matranga rounded out the Frogs with a seven-over par 79.
