Ball State women's golf team's first round at the Indiana Invitational in Columbus, Ind. has been suspended due to weather.

"We got through 75 percent of our warm before it was called," assistant coach Mary Carmody said.

Play was delayed twice because of weather throughout the day before the suspension was called.

"Our players are real troopers. They were hanging out for hours listening to iPods and playing card games," Carmody said.

Senior Brittany Kelly is leading Ball State with an even par after five holes. The Cardinals are in fifth place overall in the Invitational.

The suspension has caused the 54-hole tournament to be reduced to 36 holes.

The majority of teams had played at least seven holes before play was called off.

"Our players are taking it for what it's worth. They will come back hard tomorrow," Carmody said.

The tournament will resume Tuesday at 9 a.m. Pairings will stay the same and the final 18 holes will follow immediately.
