VESTAVIA HILLS, Ala. – Arkansas carded an even-par round of 280 and is tied for ninth after the first round of the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate, played at Old Overton Club (par 70, 7,204 yards).

Freshman Manuel Lozada leads the Razorbacks, shooting an opening-round, 1-under-par 69 to tie for 18th. Graduate seniors Mason Overstreet and Tyson Reeder are one stroke back and tied for 29th with an even-par round of 70.

Lozada played the par 3’s at 2-under, which tied for best in the field, thanks to a birdie on his opening hole (#8) and hole 17. Lozada, Overstreet and Reeder each had six birdies, each tying for the second-best total in the field. Overall, Arkansas had 22 birdies in the first round, second only to round-one leader Georgia (24).
