Head Coach Susan Jennings was pleased with Roering's opening round, but noted that she will need to concentrate to on the process to maintain her position in the talented field.
"Emily is off to a great start," said Jennings. "But she will have to not focus on where she is, but just take it one stroke at a time, one hole at a time. We try to put an emphasis on taking things one shot at a time."
Thanks to Roering's hot start, the Rams posted an opening-round team score of 316 (+28) to match conference newcomer Nevada in a tie for fifth place.
"We're right in the middle of the pack, and just four strokes out of third, so if we can just focus, we'll be right in the hunt," added Jennings.
