LAKEWOOD, WASH. – It all comes down to this for Seattle U women’s golf as the Western Athletic Conference Championships finally arrive. The Redhawks were picked to finish third in the WAC Coaches Poll, only behind New Mexico State and Grand Canyon. Now, they will put their mettle to the test as they tee off at 8:00 AM on Thursday, April 18 at the nearby Oakbrook Golf Club for the three-day event.
“We’re excited about competing at the WAC Championships once again this year,” said Head Coach Marc Chandonnet. “The team is poised to play their best golf as a group, and believe that their year has prepared them to compete regardless of the circumstances. If our entire roster plays the way that we are capable of, combined with making smart decisions and managing expectations and emotions, we should have an opportunity to win.”
