UND announces schedule, captains
UND and head coach Natalie Martinson announced the program’s schedule and captains on Friday.
Martinson’s team has six tournaments on its fall schedule with the season beginning with the Cobber Open, which is an 18-hole event hosted by Concordia in Detroit Lakes on Sept. 5.
The team will also participate in the SDSU Fall Invitational (Sept. 22-23), the Coyote Classic (Sept. 29-30), the Ron Moore Women’s Intercollegiate (Oct. 10-12), the Creighton Invitational (Oct. 20-21) and wrap up the fall schedule in Birmingham, Ala., at the UAB Invitational (Oct. 27-28).
The spring season will begin with three tournaments hosted by Big Sky schools. The opener is set for Sedona, Ariz., where Northern Arizona hosts the Red Rocks Invitational. Sacramento State is hosting a tournament in California’s capital city March 16-17. UND will then return to Arizona for a tournament hosted Montana State in Phoenix (March 30-31).
The final Big Sky tune-up will be back in California where UC-Riverside hosts “The Battle at the Rock” April 6-7.
Martinson will have two senior veterans back to captain her team, which returns each of its primary contributors from a year ago. Classmates Amanda Fairweather and Mikki Kromy each appeared in a majority of the team’s tournaments and will lead this squad on a 10-tournament regular season slate before the Big Sky Championship April 19-21 at the Ocotillo Golf Resort in Chandler, Ariz.
Joining the veteran presence in the lineup will be the trio of Sadie Martin, Dani DelGreco and Alexis Guggisberg, who were all underclassmen a year ago and led the team in stroke average, respectively.
