Memphis Ready for Lady Pirate Intercollegiate
Oct. 10, 2010
MEMPHIS, Tenn.— The University of Memphis women’s golf team will travel to Greenville, N.C. to compete in the Lady Pirate Intercollegiate Oct. 11-12. The tournament will be contested at the par-71 6,040-yard Greenville Country Club with East Carolina serving as the tournament’s host school.
16 teams are scheduled to compete this week, including four ranked in Golfweek’s top-100: Augusta State (No. 55), Charleston Southerm, East Carolina (No. 59), Elon, Gardner-Webb, Georgetown, Longwood, Memphis, Maryland (No. 79), UNC-Wilmington, Old Dominion, Univ. of Pennsylvania (No. 83), Radford, Richmond, South Florida, and William and Mary.
The Lady Tigers opened the 2010 campaign with a 34-stroke victory at the Bobcat Invitational. Memphis posted a program-low 36-hole total of 579 (291-288) behind Marissa Steen’s rounds of 71-67. Steen’s performance was not only the lowest 36-hole individual total in school history, but it was also enough for medalist honors and C-USA Female Golfer of the Week accolades.
Memphis followed that performance with a fifth place showing at the Cincinnati Fall Classic, where Steen again led them. Steen carded scores of 77-74-74 at Elks Run Golf Course to post the 12th top-20 finish of her career.
