The Women’s golf team stays busy over the summer with practice, school and volunteering. Many of them have stayed in Atlanta for summer school and they take advantage of the golfing opportunities to get ready for the fall season.

Melissa Siviter from Cosely, England, is spending most of her time on the golf course. She will tee it up at the English Open Mid Amateur that will be played from July 5-8. She is also going to play the English Women’s Open Amateur Strokeplay later on in the summer. In the meantime, Siviter will volunteer with coaching the junior girls’ county team.

Lauren Court, the only local player on the Women’s Golf Team is not wasting her time. The CAA Rookie of the Year has already played one tournament, and soon she will tee it up at the Yamaha Georgia Women’s Open and later the Top 60 Women’s Classic. Court also plans to play the U.S. Amateur Qualifier at Eagle’s Landing Golf & Country Club that starts on July 9.

Laura Sanchez is staying in Atlanta for the summer to get ahead in school. The junior from Bogota, Colombia, is taking two classes in summer school. Sanchez will also play a US Amateur Qualifier at the Panthers’ home club, Eagle’s Landing Golf & Country Club on July 9.

Alexa Clark from Devon, Pa. is working and practicing every day at a golf course near home in the Philadelphia area. She will begin her junior year at GSU in August.

Solveig Helgesen is spending time practicing at home in Europe this summer. The finance major from Hagavik, Norway was one of the 31 GSU student-athletes named to the spring semester President’s List. She will be back in August to start her junior year after a summer of practice.

Charlotte Guilleux, a senior from St. Maur De Fosses, France, is having a busy summer at GSU. She is taking four classes to finish her degree in managerial science. Summer school will be the end of a four-year U.S. experience for Guilleux. She has applied for graduate school at one of the top business programs in France and plans on starting in September.

Charlotte Lorentzen, a senior from Soroe, Denmark is also in Atlanta, looking to complete her major in journalism. This summer will conclude her stay in Atlanta as she finishes classes and works in the athletics Sports Communications office.

Lorentzen is then planning on attending the Ladies European Tour Qualifying School in December where she is looking to join former Panthers Anna Scott, Iliska Verwey, Joanna Klatten and Cathrine Madsen in the pros.
