Blue Raiders gearing up for SBC Championships
Women's golf tees off in Alabama this weekApril 18, 2010 · Athletic Communications
"Every team in the Sun Belt that we've seen this season has proven that they can play," said coach Chris Adams. "The hardest part is putting together three rounds, and we're going in with enough confidence, knowing that we can compete with the teams there."
"Clara and Morgan have really separated themselves this spring," said Adams. "Morgan leads the team in scoring average and Clara is just a half a stroke behind her. Both played in the championships at this course two years ago. I expect them to do well this week."
"Ashley and Olivia both had great falls," said Adams. "We need to work on consistency a little bit, but they're freshmen, they'll get there. Karisa has really put together some great rounds for us this spring. She's given us some good scores in really important stretches this season."
Denver, winner of the previous six Sun Belt Championships, enter as the top-rated team, ranked 18th in the country. Middle Tennessee, currently ranked 88th, is one of the four other teams rated in the top 100.
First round play for the Blue Raiders will begin Monday morning. Live tournament coverage will be available www.twitter.com/MTWomensGolf and www.golfstat.com.
