Simley junior Isabella McCauley fired a 4-under-par 68 to take the first-round lead in the Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship on Monday at Koasati Pines at Coushatta Resort in Kinder, La.

The three-day tournament for players 14-18 years old ends Wednesday.

McCauley's round included six birdies and two bogeys, both on par-3s. She has a five-stroke lead over four golfers tied for second.

She qualified for the event by winning the Minneapolis Regional with a two-day total of 8-under 136 at the Meadows at Mystic Lake in late August.
