Women’s Golf Readies for Two Tournaments
In search of its second consecutive NCAA Regional appearance, the SIU Edwardsville women’s golf team will open the main portion of its schedule this weekend.
The Cougars will play in the NKU Spring Invitational on Saturday and Sunday. It will then enter the Bellarmine Invitational, which will be played next Monday and Tuesday.
“Both tournaments should be a good test for us,” Coach Larry Bennett said. “Most teams we are jockeying with for a position in the region should be there. If we put a solid effort in these next two tournaments, we should be in good shape to qualify for regionals.”
The Cougars began the spring season at the Lady Emerald Invitational. Kallie Harrison (Decatur) finished the tournament tied for third. Katie Farrell (Princeton) finished one stroke back and tied for fifth.
“We just needed to get out and play,” Bennett said. “I knew we would have some rust, and we accomplished the goal of shaking it off before the heart of our schedule starts this weekend.”
