Dalton State Women's Golf Releases Spring Schedule

Thursday, January 18, 2018

The #2-ranked Dalton State Women's Golf team has released their 2018 Spring schedule. It features five events in four different states and will allow the Lady Birds to see the nations best before the NAIA National Championships.

"I am really looking forward to our spring schedule," said DS Women's Coach

"We are changing things up a little so as to see more teams in regions that we typically don't get to see during the regular season."

Dalton State will open as they have would normally, in Florida at the Georgetown College Women's Invitational on February 19 & 20. They will then travel to San Antonio, Texas to play in the BU Spring Break Classic hosted by Bellevue (Neb.).

"We open in St. Augustine in what is one of our favorite tournaments of the year.  We then head to San Antonio, Texas for a tournament that all the players are really excited about," said McGrew.

The Roadrunners will face a stiff challenge on March 18-20 when they play in the Bobby Nichols Intercollegiate hosted by Tennessee Tech. Coach McGrew thinks it's a great challenge. "It's a NCAA D-1 tournament hosted by Tennessee Tech. It will give us a chance to test ourselves at a different level. After that we head to the Nashville area to play"

Dalton State will travel to Old Hickory, Tenn. the very next week to play in the Cumberland Phoenix Invitational, before closing out the Spring schedule at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill. with the playing of the TPC Deere Run Invitational hosted by William Penn (Iowa). TPC Deere Run annually host the John Deere Classic, a tournament on the PGA Tour, as well as the NAIA Men's Golf National Championship.

"We feel like this will prepare us well for conference in Montgomery, Ala. and nationals in West Palm Beach, Fla.," said McGrew. "The change in schedule I think will help prepare us for postseason by competing against teams that we normally only see at nationals."

The Lady Roadrunners finished the Fall with a #2 national ranking on the back of strong showings against the nations top teams. In their four events, they would finish no worse than fourth and collect two event wins (Carey Collegiate Classic and Roadrunner Women's Invitational) and a runner-up finish (Thomas University Fall Invitational).

Every member of the women's team would finish the Fall ranked in the Top-35 in the nation individually, while also holding six of the top 8 spots in the conference.

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

I have to admit I am still laughing over the fact over 350 newspapers ganged up against President Trump’s stance on Thursday that the media is biased towards his administration. In a concerted effort these newspaper editors proved Trump to be exactly right. How in the name of common sense could any man, event, or natural phenomena cause every newspaper to unite is such a laughable ... (click for more)
