Women’s golf team starts season ranked 18th
NEWBERRY — The Newberry College women’s golf team will start the 2013-14 season ranked No. 18 in the GolfWorld/WGCA Coaches’ Poll released Wednesday.
Under the direction of defending South Atlantic Conference Coach of the Year Clarissa Childs, the youthful Wolves squad received 209 points in the voting and are the only SAC squad ranked in the top 25 of the nation.
After winning their second straight Food Lion SAC Championship and advancing to the NCAA Division II South Regional for the fourth straight year, Newberry returns two starters in a pair of juniors — 2013 second team all-SAC selection Eline Askeland and Korey Coleman.
Joining the Wolves this season are freshmen Annabelle Dallery, Marianna Monaco and Sophia Opitz.
Newberry starts the season on Sept. 9 and Sept. 10 at the Smoky Mountain Intercollegiate at the Sevierville Golf Club in Sevierville, Tenn. The Wolves will play four events in the fall season.
