JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Sept. 13, 2013) – Following a 2012-13 season that ended with an Atlantic Sun Conference title and a trip to the NCAA Regionals, the ETSU women’s golf team begins its quest for a second-straight championship season on Saturday in the Mary Fossum Invitational hosted by Michigan State University at the Forest Akers West Golf Course in East Lansing, Mich.

Beginning her 11th season at ETSU, Buccaneers’ head coach Stefanie Shelton returns five of six players from last season’s roster, a talented group that includes three seniors, a junior and a sophomore.

The Bucs have certainly enjoyed their share of success, and leading the way is senior Sian Evans (Gillingham, England), a three-time Atlantic Sun Conference first-team selection, as well as junior Gabriella Wahl (Heidenheim, Germany), a two-time A-Sun first teamer and the league’s 2012 individual champion.

But along with the experienced leadership of Evans and Wahl, the Bucs also return reigning A-Sun Freshman of the Year and All-A-Sun second team pick Vivienne Chin (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia) along with talented seniors Larissa Steinfeldt (Eschweiler, Germany) and Lourdes Lopez (Cadiz, Spain).

In addition, the Bucs have added a pair of skilled freshmen in Rachel Pollock (Guelph, Ontario, Canada) and Dominika Czudkova (Cesky Tesin, Czech Republic). 

The Bucs will play in five events during the fall season, followed by four more tournaments in the spring, before attempting to defend their A-Sun crown at the league championships April 14-16 in Jekyll Island, S.C.
