APSU Women’s Golf
Gulf Shores, AL – Austin Peay State University women’s golf team will wrap up the Fall season, Monday and Tuesday, when it participates in the UAB Fall Beach Blast, to be played at the Peninsula Golf & Racquet Club in Gulf Shores, AL.
In addition to the Lady Govs and host UAB, Louisiana-Monroe, Tennessee Tech, Belmont, Memphis, Marshall and West Florida will compete in the 36-hole event on the 5,890-yard layout.
Seniors Chelsea Harris and Ashley Wathen will participate along with freshman Rachel Deaton and junior Ashley Averitt. Either Catie Tucker or Beth Ann Burns will hold down the final spot, with the other playing as an individual.
The Lady Govs are coming off a 14th-place finish at the Memphis Invitational last week.
“We are coming off a rough week at Memphis,” APSU coach Sara Robson said. “Between the conditions and us struggling we are glad that week is behind us. We are rested and ready to play this week and looking forward to some good weather and a great golf course.
“Chelsea’s back is feeling a little better and the girls are expecting to end the fall on a positive note. Our line-up has been consistent for the most part and we are looking for everyone to have two rounds under 80. We have the capability to make that happen. We need to make good choices and not worry about the things we cannot control.”
