COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Tech women's golf team heads south for its final scheduled event of the year, the Ohio Valley Conference Championships in Muscle Shoals, Ala. from Monday, Apr. 16 to Wednesday Apr. 18.
OVC CHAMPIONSHIPS: 54 holes (18 Monday, 18 Tuesday, 18 Wednesday), located at par-72, 6,043-yard Schoolmaster Course at The Shoals in Muscle Shoals, Ala., part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Teams will kick off with tee times beginning at 8:00 a.m. CT each day. The Golden Eagles will begin at 8:50 a.m. on Monday.
THE COMPETITION: The nine-team field consists of host Austin Peay, Belmont, Eastern Illinois, Eastern Kentucky, Jacksonville State, Morehead State, Murray State, Tennessee State and Tennessee Tech.
THOUGHTS FROM COACH BROWN: "The women have been working towards this opportunity throughout the entire year. We look forward to competing against the rest of the teams in the OVC. We hope to make a splash as we have been able to do in the past and expect to be in contention on Wednesday with a chance at a title."
WHAT TO WATCH FOR: The Golden Eagles return to The Shoals for the OVC Championships for the first time since 2014. The OVC had played at Hampton Cove the past three years. Tech has placed in the top-three of the OVC Championships in two of the last three years and fifth the last time at The Shoals. Lone senior Allyson Dunn will look to put a cap on a marvelous career in the purple and gold, playing in what could be her final collegiate event.
