BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – The Roadrunner women’s golf team is prepared to kick off a busy span of five days that will feature two tournaments in two states. CSU Bakersfield will compete in the South Dakota State Jackrabbit Invitational, held in Las Vegas, Nev., Mar. 10-11, before traveling to Fresno, Calif., Mar. 13-14, for the Fresno State Classic.
“We are looking forward to getting back on the road for back-to-back tournaments in Las Vegas and Fresno,” said Meghan Thomason, Director of Golf for CSUB. “Both tournaments boast strong fields, including many teams we do not get to compete against on a regular basis. The team had a few weeks of really solid practice, so, we are ready to go and are excited to get into tournament mode again.”
For the Jackrabbit Invitational, Thomason will send senior Chandler Bullman and juniors Ariel Lee, Tori Peers, Julia Stewart, and April Chang. On Monday, the ‘Runners will kick off the Fresno State Classic with the team of Lee, Peers, Bullman, Chang, and freshman Macey Mills.
SDSU’s tournament in Las Vegas is a two-day, 54-hole invitational. The tourney will be hosted at Siena Golf Club and will feature six other women’s teams besides CSUB. There will also be 11 men’s teams competing in the Invitational, but CSUB’s men will not attend.
The Fresno State Classic will also feature 54 holes of golf at San Joaquin Country Club. The 12-team field includes, but is not limited to host Fresno State, Cal Poly, Cal State Fullerton, Nevada, and UC Riverside.
Both the SDSU and Fresno State tournaments will be of the same format, 36 holes on Day 1 and a final 18 holes on Day 2, while teams will play five and count four scores. Live stats for both tournaments will be available through GolfStat.com.
