CHICAGO - The Loyola University Chicago women's golf team released its 2013 spring schedule today. A dual match with Charleston Southern to begin the season and the Loyola Invitational highlight the spring slate for the Ramblers.
"We are very excited about our spring schedule," commented coach Jason Calhoun. "We are playing in some very competitive tournaments that should prepare us very well for the Horizon League Championships. Between the great golf courses and the different teams we will face during the first part of the spring we should be able to have a solid chance at making a run for the conference championship."
The season will begin with the team embarking on a spring break trip to Kiawah Island, S.C. for a dual match with Charleston Southern. The Buccaneers finished in fourth place at the 2012 Big South Championships. A finalized date for the dual match will be announced shortly.
Following their spring break trip, Loyola will return to Illinois when they travel to Carbondale to compete in the Saluki Invitational, March 25-26. They'll be back in action five days later at the IPFW Spring Invitational in Fort Wayne, Ind., March 31-April 1. After nearly a two-week break in action, the Ramblers will take part in the Dolores Black Falcon Invitational in Bowling Green, Ohio, April 13-14.
After competing in Ohio, the Ramblers will close out their regular season by hosting the 2013 Loyola Invitational. The event will take place at the Golf Club of Illinois in Algonquin, April 20-21.
Loyola will then head south to Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., as they set their sights on winning the program's first Horizon League Championship since 2004. The Horizon League Championships will take place over a three-day span, April 26-28.
The team returns five letterwinners from the squad that finished tied for second at the 2012 Horizon League Championships.
