COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Tech women's golf team will look to defend its tournament title at the Starmount Forest Fall Classic Monday and Tuesday, heading back to Greensboro, N.C. where the team claimed first place just one year ago.
STARMOUNT FOREST FALL CLASSIC: Oct. 2-3, 2017 – 54 holes (36 Monday, 18 Tuesday), located at the par-72, 6,186-yard Starmount Forest Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. Teams will kick off with a 7:45 a.m. CT shotgun start on Monday and an 8 a.m. shotgun start on Tuesday.
THE COMPETITION: The 12-team field consists of host UNCG, as well as Boston, Campbell, The Citadel, High Point, Marshall, N.C. A&T, Tennessee Tech, Western Carolina, William & Mary, Winthrop, and Wofford.
THOUGHTS FROM COACH BROWN: "We are excited to return to Starmount as defending champions of such a first-class event. We had some solid play at Jacksonville State last week, and we look to continue that momentum on a course where we had so much success last year. The golf course is excellent, and the women are ready to get back after it."
WHAT TO WATCH FOR: The Golden Eagles return to the site of their most recent tournament title, claiming the Starmount Forest Fall Classic last season behind an individual medalist finish from now junior Hollee Sadler. Three members of the Tech squad return from last season's title-winning group, including Sadler, Allyson Dunn (who tied for 11th at the event) and Shelby Johnson (who tied for 22nd).
