COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Tech men's golf team continues its spring slate with a familiar event hosted by in-state and Ohio Valley Conference rival UT Martin, the Grover Page Classic in Jackson, Tenn.

GROVER PAGE CLASSIC: 54 holes (36 Monday, 18 Tuesday), located at Jackson Country Club in Jackson, Tenn. Teams will kick off with an 8:30 a.m. CT shotgun start on Monday and an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start on Tuesday.

GOLDEN EAGLE LINEUP: Competing for the Golden Eagles are junior A.J. Wilkerson, sophomore Matthew Giles, freshman Cameron Yeary, junior Alexander Riddle, Dabney Dickenson and, as an individual, Charles Seals.

THE COMPETITION: The nine-team field consists of host UT Martin, as well as John A. Logan, Murray State, New Orleans, Samford, Southern Indiana, Tennessee State, Tennessee Tech and Union.

THOUGHTS FROM COACH BROWN: "The guys are ready to rebound after last week in Fort Lauderdale. It is a quick turnaround, but the guys have had the opportunity to get some good work in over spring break, and we are returning to a course where we've had success previously in Jackson Country Club. We look to build on that résumé at the Grover Page Classic this Monday and Tuesday."

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: The Golden Eagles continue their tradition of participating in the Grover Page Classic, a tradition that has seen quite a bit of success in recent seasons. In the past three seasons, Tech has notched finishes of fourth, tied for second and second and will look to build on the past success.
