Women's Golf Announces 2013-14 Schedule
June 25, 2013
LONG BEACH - Long Beach State head women's golf Joey Cerulle has announced the 49ers' upcoming schedule for the 2013-14 season.
"I'm pleased with the increase in our overall strength," Cerulle said. "Traveling to Minnesota and Stanford will allow us to see more top ranked teams and allow us additional opportunities to increase our position in the polls."
"The Gold Rush tournament is now scheduled for the month of April. It will give us confidence and preparation for the Big West Championship," Cerulle said. "The greens at Yorba Linda Country Club are very comparable to the greens at San Luis Obispo Country Club. It should be a great year and we have high expectations for the 2013-14 season."
The 49ers are set to play in four tournaments for the fall season, opening the 2013-14 campaign in Fort Collins, Colo., at the Colonel Bill Wollenberg Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic on Sept. 10. LBSU will then head to the upper Midwest for the North Star State, taking part in a two-day tournament hosted by Minnesota in Minneapolis on Sept. 16-17. The 49ers will close out the fall at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational (Oct. 8-9) in Sammamish, Wash., and the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown (Oct. 27-29).
After a three month break, LBSU returns to action opening the spring season at the Stanford Intercollegiate on Feb. 15-16. The 49ers will make a return appearance at the UC Irvine Invitational presented by KIA (Feb. 24-25) at the Santa Ana Country Club and at the Bruin Wave Invitational (Mar. 3-4) hosted by UCLA and Pepperdine at El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana.
For the first time since 2009, the 49ers heads to Hawai'I to take part in the three-day Anuenue Spring Break Classic (Mar. 24-26) at the Kapalua Bay Course in Maui.
LBSU will then close out the regular-season hosting The Gold Rush on Apr. 7-8, at the Yorba Country Club in Yorba Linda. The 49ers are the defending champions as they're set to host Boston College, Cal Poly, Cal State Fullerton, Cal State Northridge, Gonzaga, Idaho, Northern Arizona, San Diego State, San Francisco, UC Irvine and UC Riverside.
The Big West Conference women's golf championship returns to the San Luis Obispo Country Club for the third straight year as the three-day, 54-hole tournament begins on Apr. 13.
The 49ers return four starters from last year's team that won two tournament titles and placed second at the Big West Championship. Rochelle Chan is the lone senior that will lead the 49ers along with junior Chaewon Park (Honorable Mention All-Big West) and sophomores Shawnee Martinez (Second Team All-Big West) and Kassidy Teare.
