Tech Women's Golf Opens Season|
Sept. 9, 2007
LUBBOCK, Texas - The Texas Tech women's golf team officially opens its fall season Monday and Tuesday Sept. 10-11 at the Colorado State Invitational in Fort Collins, Colo.
The two-day event, the first of five fall matches for Tech this year, will take place both days at the Ptarmigan Country Club. Twenty different schools will be competing, including defending national-champion Colorado and Baylor from the Big 12.
Returning at the helm of the Lady Raiders this season is Stacey Totman, who is entering her eighth season as coach. Totman returns five letterwinners for the 2007-08 campaign, including junior Megan Dowdy, who during the summer was just one qualifying round away from competing in the 2007 Women's U.S. Open, and Ulrika Van Niekerk, a junior from Capetown, South Africa. Joining the squad this season are three highly-touted freshmen, including Robyn Scott, one of the premier amateur golfers in New Zealand.
Tech will compete all day on both Monday and Tuesday before coming back to Lubbock to prepare for the Ron Moore Invitational Sept. 17-18 in Denver, Colo. The Lady Raiders will host the Jeannine McHaney/Audrey Moorehead Invitational at the Rawles Course on Oct. 8-9.
