COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Tech women's golf team wraps up its regular season slate at the Jan Weaver Invitational beginning Friday, Apr. 5 at Miller Memorial Golf Club in Murray, Ky.

JAN WEAVER INVITATIONAL: Apr. 5-6, 2019 – 54 holes (36 Friday, 18 Saturday), located at the par-72 Miller Memorial Golf Club in Murray, Ky. Teams will kick off with an 8:00 a.m. CT shotgun start on Friday and an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start on Saturday.

GOLDEN EAGLE LINEUP: Competing for the Golden Eagles are junior Shelby Johnson, sophomore Hannah Bratton, freshman Heidi Lawson, junior Arianna Clemmer and sophomore Isabel York. Competing as an individual is sophomore Kate Mashburn.

THE COMPETITION: The 15-team field consists of host Murray State, as well as, Alabama State, Austin Peay, Belmont, Bradley, Eastern Kentucky, Illinois State, Lipscomb, ULM, Missouri Baptist, Northern Kentucky, Rutgers, Southern Illinois, Tennessee State and Tennessee Tech.

THOUGHTS FROM COACH BROWN: "The women are looking forward to getting back on the road following Eastern Kentucky's event. I think this is a good opportunity for them to bounce back from a difficult performance in Richmond. The field for Murray's event looks to be very strong with several Ohio Valley Conference teams. I think it's a good way to close out the regular part of the season as we get ready for conference in a few weeks. We've had some success at this golf course before and we've had some individuals play very well there in the past. I think this upcoming week just gives the women a chance to generate some positive momentum as we head into conference."
