WASHINGTON, D.C. - Catholic University head golf coach Ed Dolan announced the women's 2019 spring schedule on Thursday afternoon. After a strong start in its inaugural fall season, the team begins again Sunday, March 24, with a tri-match against Marymount and Shenandoah at University of Maryland Golf Course in College Park, Md.
The Cardinals then travel to Stafford, Va. the following weekend to participate in the Eagle Invitational, hosted by Mary Washington University, at Augustine Golf Club.
"I'm proud of how our teams got started this fall and progressed as the season went along," Dolan said. "I think we can build on the momentum and compete well for the conference championship in the spring."
Conference play gets going for Catholic in April, starting with the Susquehanna Spring Invitational on April 6. The women's team takes on the River Hawks in a one-day match at Bucknell Golf Club in Lewisburg, Pa. The Cardinals follow with their last regular season action on April 14-15 at the Goucher Spring Invitational at Hillendale Country Club in Phoenix, Md.
A youthful women's roster will look to build on a fall season in which the team finished in the top half of competing teams in three of the five competitions, including a first-place spot in the Gettysburg Tri-Match on September 14. Freshman Mary Colella led the way with the team's lowest round score of 81 and low round average of 90.1. Fellow freshmen Jordan Farrell and JoJo Parker as well as sophomore Tess Murphy followed with averages below 95 and combined for six top-10 finishes in the fall.
The women's Landmark Conference Championships are slated for April 27-28. Catholic will compete in Branchburg, N.J. at Fox Hollow Golf Club.
