The 2011 MIAC Women's Golf Championships start Saturday in Coon Rapids at Bunker Hills Golf Course. The 54-hole, three-day tourney continues Sunday and concludes Monday.
The 2011-2012 Tommies are young but have bolstered their depth with four new players. Coach Sara Evens has a nine-player roster, including just one senior (Shannon Richter) and one junior (Cassy Norton).
The 2010 Tommies closed the fall season with a fifth-place finish at the MIAC Championships and Norton and Emma Wilson placed eighth and ninth, respectively, for All-MIAC recognition.
The Tommies have a 342.2 stroke average in eight rounds this fall to rank sixth of 10 MIAC teams.
Wilson, a sophomore, leads the team at 83.4 through eight rounds and is followed by freshman Katie Kruchten (87.6), Richter (87.9), Norton (88.1) and freshman Kayla Westling (90.3).
