GLVC Tournament Upcoming for Women's Golf
SIUE women's golf Coach Larry Bennett is very optimistic about the future.
The Cougars will play in the GLVC tournament on Oct. 7-8 at Timbergate Golf Club in Edinburgh, Ind.
Bennett, however, added a new twist to the schedule. The Cougars play at McKendree College on Thursday against McKendree and William Woods College. Bennett felt that it was important to add another match before the GLVC Tournament because the last match they played in was on Sept. 22-23 in the Illinois Wesleyan Invitational.
Bennett is still shaping his lineup for the GLVC Tournament. Two of SIUE's players have guaranteed their spots for the GLVC tournament and the rest of the players currently are playing in qualifying rounds. Katie Farrell (Princeton) and Deanna Bock (Edwardsville) hold scoring averages of 83.4 and 84.5, respectively. The duo set a school record for 36 holes at the Illinois Wesleyan Tournament with a 156 score. Farrell set the 18-hole record at 75.
"There is no reason why we could not win (the GLVC Tournament), but realistically we are aiming for the top four," said Bennett. "Anything below that would disappoint the women and myself."
