Cougars Start Season with NKU Invitational
SIUE’s women’s golf team will tee off in its first spring tournament this weekend at the Northern Kentucky Invitational.
The tournament, to be held Saturday and Sunday at Eagle Creek Country Club in Crittenden, Ky., will feature many of the teams in SIUE’s region.
“The teams we need to beat to improve our position in the region will be there,” said Coach Larry Bennett.
The Cougars are coming off a fall season that saw them finish fourth in the Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament. Kacy Grunkemeyer (Salem) was crowned GLVC champion.
“This is the first tournament of the season, so we’ll get a feel for where we’re at,” Bennett said. “The girls are going into the weekend with a positive frame of mind, and they know what they need to do.”
The Cougars then travel to the Bellarmine Invitational for a tournament next Monday and Tuesday.
