Women’s Golf Heads to NKU
         Coach Larry Bennett looks to see where his women’s golf team is at this weekend.
         “We are going out to face some teams in our conference,” said Bennett. “It will give us a chance to see where we match up.”
         The Cougars travel to Highland Heights, Ky., for the Northern Kentucky Invitational. The two-day competition begins on Saturday at A. J. Jolly Golf Course. SIUE then heads to the Indianapolis Invitational for a one-day event on Monday.
         “We will be playing 18 holes each of the three days. It should show us whether or not we are mentally and physically fit. The team has been hitting the ball well in practice, so I hope to have decent scores this weekend.”
         The women’s golf team opened up its spring season with a third-place finish last weekend at the Lindenwood Lady Lions Invitational. The Cougars shot a total of 758 (365-393) in the two-day invitational.
         “It wasn’t bad for our first match, but it wasn’t golf weather.”
         Katie Farrell (Princeton) was the top finisher for SIUE. Farrell shot a 180 (89-91) to place ninth overall.
