BOONE — Appalachian State University head women’s golf coach Heather Brown announced the 2017 spring schedule on Tuesday. The Mountaineers will participate in five tournaments in the spring, hosting their annual Mimosa Hills Intercollegiate in Morganton.
“We have a familiar slate for spring 2017 which should bode well for our upperclassmen,” Brown said. “We have also added the River Landing Classic, which will include some of the top teams. I am confident we will build on our success in the fall, keep improving and head into the Sun Belt Championship ready to compete!”
Appalachian launches the spring slate by traveling to Wallace, N.C. to participate in the River Landing Classic on March 9-10. The Black and Gold then head to the Low Country Intercollegiate in Bluffton, S.C. (March 18-19). The Mountaineers finished fourth of 18 teams in last year’s Low Country Intercollegiate as the team shot a 314 overall score. Emily Stinson carded a team-best 153 on the tournament, with a 75 on day one and a 78 on day two (+9) to finish ninth overall.
Rounding out the month of March, the Mountaineers will play in the John Kirk Panther Invitational in Stockbridge, Ga. on March 26-28.
App State will host its lone tournament of the spring 2017 season when it welcomes teams to the Mimosa Hills Intercollegiate on April 2-3. The Apps will look to three-peat the tournament, having claimed first place the past two years. Last year, Savanna Wood led the Mountaineers with a team-low 75 and 73 – good for second place overall.
After the home tournament, the Mountaineers will head to compete against conference foes in the 2017 Sun Belt Championship tournament in Muscle Shoals, Ala.
