Women's golf to compete in New Mexico tourney

The IU women’s golf team will continue its season this weekend at the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational.

The tournament stands as one of the premier college golf tournaments and will be held at the University of New Mexico’s Championship Golf Course in Albuquerque, N.M.

“It’s traditionally a fantastic event,” IU coach Clint Wallman said.

The field includes several ranked teams. Fellow Big Ten schools Ohio State and Northwestern will join IU in competition with the host Lobos, BYU, Colorado, Oregon, Georgia State, UC Irvine, Denver, TCU, San Diego State and Wyoming.

The Hoosiers lineup will include sophomores Pamela Burneski, Kate Coons and Rosie Davies along with freshman Sophie Hayashi and junior Kristtini Cain.

IU is coming off a sixth place finish in Michigan last weekend and looks to continue improving against a tough field.

“I’m really excited about the girls heading into New Mexico,” Wallman said. “We did a lot of great things in Michigan and got our first tournament jitters out of the way and now we have a lot better perspective of where we need to focus our attention.”
