ATLANTA – Looking to build off a strong start to the spring season, the Georgia State women’s golf team will return to the course starting on Monday for the River Landing Classic at River Landing Country Club in Wallace, N.C.

Georgia State is coming off a fourth-place finish last week at the Amelia Island Collegiate where junior Harmanprit Kaur earned a third-place finish.

A talented field of 16 teams will compete in the 54-hole event over two days along the eastern shore of North Carolina.

“Our team is playing with a lot of confidence right now after a very good start to the spring season,” head coach Cathy Mant said. “This might be the toughest field that we face this spring and our squad is excited about that. They want to play against really good teams to see where we stand and where we need to get so we can reach postseason play.”

The field will play a practice round on Sunday, before playing 36 holes in a shotgun start on Monday morning beginning at 9 a.m. The final round is set for 9 a.m. shotgun start on Tuesday.

Along with Georgia State, the field will include host UNCW, Boston College, Campbell, Charlotte, East Tennessee State, Georgetown, Marshall, Memphis, Middle Tennessee, Penn State, Rutgers, Seton Hall, UNC Greensboro, Winthrop and individuals from East Carolina.

This week’s line-up will include junior Harmanprit Kaur, sophomores Chloe Howard and Petra Duran, along with freshman Alejandra Ayala and Maria Blasco.

Kaur leads the Panthers with a 75.00 scoring average and five rounds of par or better. In six tournaments this year she already has three top 25 finishes.

Ayala, from Alpharetta, Ga., will be making her collegiate debut this week.

Live scoring of all three rounds can be found at GolfStat.com. Fans can follow the team on twitter @GSU_WGolf.

Following this week’s tournament, Georgia State will travel to Sorrento, Fla., for the MSU Citrus Challenge March 17-19.
