ATLANTA – The Georgia State women’s golf team will open the spring season on Monday for the third-straight season at the Amelia Island Collegiate at Amelia National Golf & Country Club in Fernandina Beach, Fla.

This will mark the first of four regular-season spring events leading up to the Sun Belt Conference championship in April.

Freshman Chloe Howard led the Panthers in the fall with a 75.79 scoring average, including a 12th place finish at the Jacksonville Classic.

“After several good weeks of practice, our team is excited to get the spring season underway,” head coach Cathy Mant said. “The team has worked hard since we returned to school a month ago to put ourselves in the best position possible entering the season. We all look forward to getting back on the course Monday."

The 15-team field will play a practice round on Sunday, before playing 36 holes in a shotgun start on Monday morning beginning at 8 a.m. The final round is set for an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start on Tuesday.

The field will include host Jacksonville, Bradley, Campbell, Cincinnati, Daytona State, Eastern Kentucky, Florida Gulf Coast, Jacksonville State, Morehead State, North Florida, UAB, UNC Asheville, USC Upstate, and Winthrop.

This week’s line-up will include seniors Paula Zabarte and Yasemin Sari, along with sophomores Harmanprit Kaur and Grace Choi, with freshman Chloe Howard leading the line-up.

Following this week’s tournament, Georgia State will continue the spring at the Bama Beach Bash March 16-18, in Mobile, Ala., at Gulf Shores Golf Club.
