DADE CITY, Fla. — The WKU women’s golf team will make its home in Florida this week as the Lady Toppers co-host the WKU/USM Spring Break Shootout, presented by Russell Athletic.
WKU is hosting the event with Southern Miss at the par-72, 6,325-yard Lake Jovita Golf Club. Play begins Monday with two rounds on a shotgun start at 7:30 a.m. CT, followed by the final round beginning at 7:30 a.m. CT Tuesday.
WKU and Southern Miss are joined by 11 other teams in the field: Albany, Boston College, Florida Gulf Coast, Georgia Southern, Fort Wayne, Jacksonville State, North Florida, Quinnipiac, St. John’s, Samford and Tennessee Tech.
This will be the Lady Toppers’ third event of the spring, immediately following a 14th-place finish in a strong field last week at the UNF Collegiate in Jacksonville, Fla.
Junior Georgina Blackman tied for 21st in that event, notching her sixth top-25 finish in seven events this year. Before the UNF tournament, WKU opened the spring with a third-place showing in the Samford Spring Shootout.
Blackman will be joined by juniors Katie Story and Emily Alexander in WKU’s team of five, as well as freshmen Mary Joiner and Abigail Smee. Senior Daniela Galassi will compete as an individual.
