DENVER – Following a brief fall campaign, the Johnson & Wales University women's golf team is set for its inaugural spring season.
A first-year program and member of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, the Wildcats competed in two events in the fall and have a full slate of tournaments ahead of them in the spring, starting with the Linda Lowery Invitational in Feb. 25-26 in Austin, Texas and concluding with the SCAC Championship April 22-23 in Blanco, Texas.
"What motivates me is just going out there and doing the best I can," Kauffman said. "I'm very excited to be on the team. It's a good opportunity for me to do something else with the school, and I really just want to be out there, have fun and just play good."
Having fun is a priority for athletic director Tom Byrnes, who will serve as the interim coach until the search for a full-time coach is completed.
"We're still trying to put some pieces together, but I think the one thing I've tried to emphasize is we're going to go out and have fun," Byrnes said. "Golf is a fun sport, it's a lifetime sport. We're going to do the best we can."
Any JWU students who are interested in joining the women's golf team should contact Tom Byrnes at 303-256-9330 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
