The Racers are four-time defending champs, but Lady Govs senior golfer Chelsea Harris is the defending medalist, shooting 76-79=155 a year ago. Harris will lead a Lady Govs quintet that also will include fellow senior Ashley Wathen along with junior Ashley Averitt and two freshmen, Rachel Deaton and Tala Mumford.

Senior Catie Tucker, sophomore Holly Batey and redshirt freshman Tabitha Beard will compete as individuals.

“We are looking forward to getting the Spring season started,” APSU coach Sara Robson said. “The weather has been an issue since the team returned to campus but we have had two good weeks outside. The girls have worked hard and used their time wisely.”

“We have been putting up some good numbers in qualifying and are looking to use that as momentum going into our opener,” Robson said. “We have several players that could make the line-up this semester and we will continue to work hard and build on the strong fall season we had.”
