NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State women’s golf team heads to Muscle Shoals, Ala., to compete in the Ohio Valley Conference Championship. Carson Racich leads the squad with a 79.1 average in just her first year in the program. The freshman recorded the second best score in program history with a 73 earlier in the season and has a season best 232 in a 54-hole outing. Morgan Rood carded her career best round at the Town & Country Invitational in October and will look to improve on her best 54-hole performance of 249, set at the OVC Championships a year ago. Haleigh Riley looks to continue her growth during her sophomore campaign. Riley is averaging six strokes better than a season ago and posted her career best 54-hole tournament in the fall at the F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate. Dhani McDowell enters the OVCs after posting three of her four top scores in each of the lasting three outings. Savannah Szozda brings in momentum after coming off her best round since the early fall.


QUOTES

“I'm looking forward to OVCs because, as a team, I think we are mentally and physically ready to shoot our lowest three round tournament. My hopes for this tournament, is to focus on having fun, so If I hit a bad shot, I will stay in the game mentally and just keep looking at the next shot ahead.”
