Golf Travels West for Golfweek Conference Challenge
Sept. 20, 2013
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana University women's golf team will head west to Colorado to take part in the three-day, 54-hole Golfweek Conference Challenge at Red Sky Golf Club in Wollcott, Colo.
Joining Indiana in the field is Ball State, Boston College, Central Arkansas, Denver, East Tennessee State, Florida International, Harvard, Illinois State, James Madison, Morehead State, Northern Arizona, Pepperdine, San Jose State, SMU, TCU, University of Arkansas-Little Rock and UC Davis.
The par-72, 6,262-yard course will host the teams for 18 holes beginning at 12 p.m. ET on Monday, 18 holes at 12 p.m. ET Tuesday and the final round at 11:30 a.m. ET Wednesday. Live results will be available on Golfstat.com.
The Hoosiers are coming off an 11th-place finish in the Mary Fossum Invitational last weekend and will be led by freshman Ana Sanjuan. Sanjuan has been the top IU finisher in each of the two events this season, placing tied for 21st at the Mary Fossum last weekend with a 54-hole tally of 229.
Junior Elizabeth Tong will play in the No. 2 spot. Tong has had a solid start to her season, placing tied for 24th at last week's event including a season-best 74 in round two. After a breakout tournament last weekend with her best ever showing as a Hoosier, junior Kamryn Klawitter will compete in the third spot. Playing as an individual at the Mary Fossum Invitational, Klawitter tied for 30th with rounds of 79-75-77.
Senior Sophie Hayashi plays in the No. 4 hole this weekend. Hayashi had a strong showing off the tee last weekend but struggled around the putting green that contributed to her scores of 80-81-81. A week of focus on putting, as well as a change in her putter, should produce improved results this weekend.
Rounding out the travel group is sophomore Maria Mancini. Mancini got her year off to a great start with a tie for eighth at the IU Fall Kickoff with rounds of 73 and 76.
The Hoosiers will have a bit of a break in their schedule after this week, with their next tournament Oct. 19-20 for the Hoosier Fall Invitational at Hickory Stick Golf Club in Greenwood, Ind.
