Women’s Golf Announces 2011-12 Schedule
Golden Flashes get 2011 fall season underway Sept. 17-18 at Michigan State's Mary Fossum Invite
KENT, Ohio – The Kent State women's golf team announced today its competition schedule for the 2011-12 season.
The Golden Flashes will play in four fall tournaments as head coach Mike Morrow will challenge the team with what he feels will be a good test after a summer of strong individual performances.
"This is one of our best fall schedules," said Morrow. We will be playing in three new tournaments, which will be exciting and challenging for our team."
Kent State starts the year Sept. 17-18 at the Mary Fossum Invitational, hosted by Michigan State; it's a tournament the Golden Flashes have played in 11 times previous, including last year's second-place finish.
From there, the Golden Flashes will face the nation's best in a trio of tournaments new to the program. Kent State will play in the Windy City Classic, hosted by Northwestern, Oct. 3-4 before traveling to the Stanford Intercollegiate Oct. 14-16. The 2011 fall slate concludes Oct. 31-Nov. 2 at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational.
While the fall season features plenty of change, Kent State's spring season features the same five tournaments as the 2010-11 campaign. The Golden Flashes break out of winter Feb. 12-14 at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic.
The Golden Flashes travel twice to Florida, playing in the Central District Challenge Feb. 20-21 before the Lady Gator Invitational March 16-18. Kent State will again be part of the field at the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic March 30-April 1, hosted by Georgia.
Kent State returns to its home state of Ohio for its final regular season tournament April 21-22 at the Lady Buckeye Invitational, hosted by Ohio State.
Kent State's 2012 postseason begins April 27-29 when the Golden Flashes look to continue their streak of consecutive Mid-American Conference championships at the 2012 MAC Championship at Hawthornes Golf & Country Club in Fishers, Ind.
The 2012 NCAA Regionals are slated for May 10-12 with Colorado, Ohio State and Penn State as hosts. The 2012 NCAA Championship will be hosted by Vanderbilt at Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tenn.
