The Eagles Women’s Golf Team isn’t known by many students at Georgia Southern and should not be overlooked. 2015 will be the inagural year for the Women’s Golf team at GSU. Their head coach, Emily Kuhfeld, has great aspirations for her team as they begin the season. She knows they have recruited a great young group of women that are special in their different strengths mentally, physically, and academically as they all strive to be the best they can possibly be. She also likes the diversity of the team and the different backgrounds that they come from as they all bring something different to the table as they learn and grow with each other. Coach Kuhfeld is excited about their upcoming season as she has raved about their past month of practice and how proud she is of her team. The team is comprised of Freshman Ansley Bowman, Ariana Macioce, Yeji Shin, and Annie Swords with Juniors Taylor Thompson and Iben Hvass.

They start their season of September 20-22 at the Furman Lady Paladin Invitational in Greenville, South Carolina. Coach Kuhfeld is eager to see the results of what her girls can do in their first competition together as a whole as she believes this might be the toughest field they have all season. The field will host teams like Clemson, Georgetown, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Missouri, Furman, Wake Forest, and many other competitive opponents. This competition will be a good test on where the Eagles are now and how much they can improve for the Sun Belt Championship.

The Eagles schedule have them in the Lady Pirate Invitational September 28-29, Wendy’s Invitational October 4-5, Fighting Camel Fall Classic October 18-20, Texas State Spring Challenge February 13-15, Amelia Island Intercollegiate February 28-March 1, GRU Augusta 3M Jaguar Intercollegiate March 11-13, Bearcat Spring Classic March 25-27, and finally the Sun Belt Championship.
