Women's Golf Hosts Green Bay and Plays in Cougar Classic This Weekend
Sept. 12, 2013
CHICAGO - The UIC women’s golf team will compete in its fourth and fifth events of the Fall season with a home dual match against Green Bay (Sept. 14) and Chicago State’s Cougar Classic (Sept. 16-17). The Green Bay dual match will be held at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont and the Cougar Classic will be played at the Harborside International Golf Club in Chicago.
The Flames head into their dual match with confidence after they trumped Green Bay’s 36-hole total this past week for the first time in program history. Thirteen teams will play in the Cougar Classic including Creighton, University of Texas-Pan American, Detroit, Dayton, IPFW, Eastern Illinois, Loyola, Northern Illinois, Green Bay, Cleveland State, Indiana State and Chicago State.
“As we preview this weekend’s events we continue to focus on scoring by eliminating numbers over bogey,” said UIC head coach Carol Rhoades. "Green Bay has provided us with great competition so far this season and the field at the Cougar Classic is deep and talented. Our goal remains to shoot under 320 as a team."
The Flames are coming off of their third lowest 36-hole total in program history at the Green Bay Invitational (Sept. 9-10). The Flames combined for a score of 320 in round one and ultimately took sixth at the event with a 36-hole total of 649. The 36-hole performance only trails past UIC efforts at the 2011 Detroit Titans Fall Classic (633) and 2012 Detroit Titans Fall Classic (638).
Ryann Gilley finished in a tie for ninth place with a 36-hole total of 158. She missed matching her lowest career 36-hole total by one stroke, which was set at the 2012 Detroit Titans Fall Classic (157).
