YOUNGSVILLE – Morgan Guepet of St. Martin’s fashioned a six-under-par 68 score, a round that included five birdies and an eagle, and Isidore Newman claimed the team lead here Monday in the first round of the Division II girls’ competition in the Allstate Sugar Bowl LHSAA State Golf Championships.

Guepet was five-under through her first 11 holes and had only one bogey on the day in her 34-34 round over the 5,679-yard par-72 Les Vieux Chenes layout. She leads 2019 runner-up Liza Lapeyre of Isidore Newman by four shots after Lapeyre carded a two-under 38-34—72 score, and that pair is five shots ahead of the rest of the field.

Lapeyre’s score and the ninth-place 82 score of Fionna Marks helped Newman turn in a 154 team score, good enough for a five-shot advantage over Ursuline (159). Those teams are well ahead of the rest of the field, with Christ Episcopal standing at 185 and St. Martin’s at 187 in the team standings going into Tuesday’s final 18 holes.

Sophia Macias of Episcopal stands in third place individually at three-over 77, and Sarah Knight of Ouachita Christian and Sweden Ledet of Ursuline are tied for fourth at 78. Cassidy Lambert of Academy of the Sacred Heart-New Orleans, Arianna Blagrove of Ursuline and Alexis Gonzalez of St. Michael are one more stroke back and tied for sixth at 81.
