Clarksville, TN – After a two-week stretch featuring its annual home tournament and a welcome week off, Austin Peay State University (APSU) women’s golf returns to action at the ULM Fred Marx Invitational at Bayou Desiard Golf Club in Monroe, Louisiana.
This will be the second year in a row the Govs have trekked down to the bayou for the Warhawks’ home event.
Last season, the Govs finished just outside the top-five and will look to break through in the nine-team field this time around, against a field which includes defending champion (and Ohio Valley Conference foe) Murray State, as well as host ULM and student-athletes from Lamar, Lipscomb, North Alabama, Prairie View, South Alabama and Tennessee Tech.
After finishing third at the F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate two weeks ago—which followed a third-place finish at the Chris Banister Classic and runner-up honors at the Greenbrier Invitational—the Govs look to extend their program-record streak of top-three finishes to four.
Taylor Goodley and Taylor Dedmen will top the lineup for the Govs to start the event. Dedmen keeps racking up top-20 finishes after tying for 10th two weeks ago, while Goodley was 13th at the home tournament and 19th in this event last season.
Ashton Goodley rejoins the lineup this week, while freshman Shelby Darnell remains in the lineup following yet another exemplary performance in her first home appearance. Junior Meghann Stamps takes the last lineup spot, while senior Reagan Greene—whose 18th-place finish at Bayou Desiard was a team-best a year ago—while make the trip as an individual.
“We really had a chance to work on some things on the course this week at practice, so we are excited to see that pay off once we get to Louisiana,” said head coach Amy McCollum. “There are always some great teams at this field, so we will really be able to compete and focus on being better than we were the day before.”
