NORTH ANDOVER, MA – Head Coach Nick Crovetti has released the first-ever schedule for the Merrimack women's golf team.
"Being a part of a first-year team can sometimes be a difficult task, but we have the perfect group of girls to be able to have a successful first year," said Crovetti. "We are all very excited to begin the season!"
In the first season of golf at Merrimack, the Warriors will compete in their first-ever match at Wellesley College on September 10.
"We hope to be competitive in every match, and I also hope to motivate the players to the love the game of golf even more by helping them improve."
They will then compete at the NYU Spook Rock tournament on September 16 and at Mount Holyoke on September 24.
"The schedule is a compilation of Division I, II, and III events," said Crovetti. "It's an aggressive and competitive schedule, which should benefit our team and program moving forward. We are very excited to travel around New England to compete in our inaugural year."
In October, Merrimack will tee off at the Myrtle Beach Intercollegiate (Oct. 1), the Club at Shadow Lakes at Robert Morris (Oct. 9), and the Nazareth Invitational (Oct. 15).
Merrimack will host the Warrior Shootout on October 24 at Black Swan Country Club in Georgetown.
Along with women's crew, women's golf was added as an intercollegiate sport at Merrimack for 2011-12, pushing the total number of intercollegiate sports offered to twenty-two. In just two years, Merrimack has increased its number of sports from 16 to 22, after men's and women's indoor and outdoor track were added in 2010-11.
