ATLANTA - The Georgia State women's soccer team will finish its fall season schedule in Kiawah Island, S.C., at the Edwin Watts/Palmetto Intercollegiate on Sunday and Monday.
The Panthers will play 36 holes on Sunday, followed by 18 holes on Monday. The tournament will be held at the Oak Point Golf Course.
"We are looking forward to going to Kiawah Island," coach Cathy Mant said. "It will be an interesting experience, as we will be staying in a home rather than a hotel. But it should be a great bonding experience for our team.
"The field looks good. We have been working hard, but we just need to dig deeper. We are not meeting our potential. These girls can play great golf, we are just looking to see if it happens. We're excited, working hard and eager to get the job done. We've been working on the little things and seeing improvement. Now we just need to go show it on the golf course."
The field at the Edwin Watts/Palmetto Intercollegiate includes the host College of Charleston, Michigan, Campbell, Kansas, Maryland, South Florida, East Tennessee State, James Madison, Coastal Carolina, Augusta State, Xavier, Elon, Bucknell, Richmond, Jacksonville State, Charleston Southern and The Citadel.
