Orlando, Fla. (www.ucfathletics.com) - With two tournaments left before the spring schedule rolls around, the UCF women's golf team travels to Greenville, N.C., this weekend for the Lady Pirate Fall Invitational.

Meanwhile, freshmen Leigh Crosby (Athens, Ga.), Sara Hurwitch (Potomac Falls, Va.) and Victoria Tomko (Lontzen, Belgium) are all performing well in just their first collegiate seasons. Crosby leads the team with a 79.67 stroke average, Hurwitch posted UCF's best individual round with a two-over 74 in Kentucky and Tomko recorded a 78 in the final round of the NCAA Fall Preview in Daytona Beach, Fla.
