Oct. 3, 2007
GREENVILLE, N.C. - The East Carolina women's golf team made its debut in the national collegiate golf rankings Monday afternoon when they garnered a No. 20 ranking by GolfWeek.
Following their tournament win at the 2007 Myrtle Beach Classic last week, the Pirates (14-0) find themselves nationally-ranked for the first time in school history.
"We are extremely exited about the national recognition our program has received," said head coach Kevin Williams. "We still have a long way to go with such a young team and this weekend's event will be a huge test for us since the field consists of nine teams ranked in the top 20 and 15 in the top 50."
ECU will hit the links Friday, Oct. 5 when it participates in the 2007 Lady Tar Heel Invitational, which will be played at the par-72, 6,285-yard UNC Finley Golf Course in Chapel Hill.
The three-day, 54-hole tournament will begin Friday at 9 a.m. with the field consisting of 18 teams: (2) Duke, (7) Auburn, (8) Oklahoma State, (11) Georgia, (12) Tennessee, (14) Texas, (16) Vanderbilt, (18) Wake Forest, (20) East Carolina, (26) North Carolina, (28) Florida State, (29) South Carolina, (33) Kentucky, (34) NC State, (40) Texas A&M, (52) Tulsa, (66) College of Charleston and (71) Virginia.
