The Golden Eagle women's golf team finished fifth in its first tournament of the season earlier this week at the MSU Drake Creek Invitational, hosted by OVC foe Murray State.

"We still have a lot of work to do," said Head Coach Polk Brown.

Though the team is young and traveled with three freshman and three sophomores, its finish was the second highest for the women's team in a year.

"I think we have a lot to build on," said Brown. "We're really young, still trying to get experience."

Young or not, the Golden Eagles' top three earned a top 30 finish. Sophomore Maddi Everts' 16th place score led the team.  Freshman Lydia Triplett finished tied for 20th with a 240 overall.  Lastly, freshie Whitney Robertson scored Tuesday's low round with a 78 and finished tied for 28th.

"I like the way they fought while they were there," said Brown. "I'm excited to see where we go from this point, forward."

The Golden Eagle women's golf team will participate in the Great Smokies Invitational, hosted by Western Carolina Monday, Sept. 16.

"The course they're going to this week, I think they can shoot some really good numbers, get a lot of confidence," said Brown.

Brown said his team has potential; they just have to play well.

"We play the way we're capable of playing, we can win the tournament," said Brown.
