LIHUE - Marissa Uradomo shot a 1-under-par 72 on Tuesday in the first round of the David S. Ishii Foundation Girls Golf State Championships, leaving her one stroke out of the lead and helping Baldwin High School finish the day in second place as a team.
Uradomo trailed only Iolani's Rose Huang with 18 holes left at Wailua Golf Course.
"I wasn't expecting this at all," said Uradomo, this year's Maui Interscholastic League champion. "During the practice round, I told myself, 'It's OK if I shoot over par.' Then, during my round, I thought par was 72. When I found out it was 73, I was like, 'I guess I was 1 under today.' "

Uradomo played the five par-5 holes in 4 under.
"She was just hitting the drives a mile, I must say," said Bears coach Kenny Houpo. "She was really out there, put herself in position for some birdies."
Baldwin, which claimed a sixth consecutive league championship this year, had a total score of 8-over 227, six shots behind Iolani. Punahou, winner of the last five state titles, was at 228.

"Tomorrow, it's a new day," Uradomo said. "I'm pretty sure we'll be able to learn from our mistakes, and hopefully we'll have a good day."
Kauai's Taylor Viquelia, who was in Uradomo's group, carded a 73 and was tied with Waiakea's Ciera Min and Kalaheo's Monique Ishikawa. Moanalua's Emi Koga, the defending champion, was at 74, as was Punahou's Kacie Komoto.
Baldwin's Bianca Armanini was one of four players tied for eighth at 75.
"The first nine, I was just making pars," said Armanini, who started on the 10th hole. "The back nine, I was kind of more up and down. Overall, I felt like I did pretty well."
Baldwin's Kimberlie Miyamoto, the MIL runner-up, had an 80, and Kalea Heu an 81.
"We came out pretty loose today," Houpo said. "There were just a couple of missed bounces or putts that don't go in that gave Kalea an 81 or Kimberlie an 80. There was really no stress."
The Bears' Kaylee Shimizu, whose score did not count in the team competition, had a 77.
"She put up a phenomenal round," Houpo said. "She took those practice rounds and she learned from them."
Kamehameha Maui's Shannon Abarra carded an 80, Nicole Nagamine an 86 and Shaina Hipolito a 102. The Warriors' 268 team total left them in 10th place.
