ASU announces 2009-10 women’s golf schedule

JONESBORO, AR - The Arkansas State women's golf schedule has been announced by head coach Ginger Brown- Lemm and is highlighted by the annual Lady Red Wolf Classic, which will once again be held at the Jonesboro County Club and is slated for Oct. 12-13.

ASU will compete in six fall tournaments and six more in the spring, including the Sun Belt Conference Championships April 20-22 in Florence, Ala. The first tournament of the 2009-10 campaign, the Chris Banister Golf Classic hosted by Jacksonville State University, is set for Sept. 6-8 in Calhoun County, Ala.

After opening the season at the Chris Banister Golf Classic, Arkansas State will participate in tournament's hosted by Nebraska, Missouri State and South Florida before hosting its only home tournament of the year. ASU will complete its fall schedule at the UAB Fall Beach Blast Nov. 1-2 in Gulf Shores, Ala.

The team will begin its fall schedule at the Stripes Islander Classic, hosted by Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Feb. 28-Mar. 2. ASU's remaining fall tournaments are hosted by Texas State, Georgia State, UALR and Eastern Kentucky.

"One of my prime objectives along with recruiting was to improve our schedule," said Brown-Lemm, who is beginning her

second season as head coach at ASU. "We have been able to accomplish just that. We have strong fall first-time events at Nebraska, South Florida and Alabama-Birmingham. Our spring is packed with Texas State, Georgia State and UALR.

I'm so excited about the challenge in these venues and these courses."
