Golfers en route to weekend play

Both the men’s and women’s golf teams tee it up this weekend in their respective tournaments.

Head coach Jack Pheanis and his men’s team open the fall season with Friday through Sunday’s (Sept. 15-17) Association of Mid-Continent Univerities/University of Northern Iowa Invitational.

Heading the men’s team is junior Mike Briggs, while fellow teammates Brian King and Mark Voeller look to aid the Huskie cause.

Pam Tyska and her women’s team head downstate to compete in the 36-hole Illinois State University Redbird Invitational on Saturday. Nicole Jeray leads the Huskies with her 80.6 stroke average in five rounds of play. Mishelle Reed and Sharon Humphrey look to give Jeray some back up down at the ISU tourney.

“We’re having trouble finding a leader,” Tyska said. “Our game will have to change a bit this week due to Illinois State’s course. We will need to rely on accuracy rather than distance to get the job done and get the scores needed.”
