Sept. 24, 2009

ORLANDO, Fla. - Hoping to stay hot off a win against Colorado University in the Hooters Collegiate Match Play Championships two weeks ago, the UCF women's golf team is back in action and traveling to Lexington, Ky., to participate in the Bettie Lou Evans Fall Invitational, hosted by the University of Kentucky.

The tournament features three ranked teams in the Golf World/NGCA Top 25 Poll with the top team being No. 10 Florida State followed by No. 16 Chattanooga and No. 19 Louisville. 15 total teams will be participating.

The event includes 54 holes at the University Club course, which is par 72 and 6,168 yards long.

Tee times off of holes #1 and #10 will begin Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. The shotgun start will follow Saturday and Sunday at 8:30 a.m.

UCF will line up with two of the team's freshmen in the #1 and #2 positions; Carolin Pinegger (Marquartstein, Germany) and Valentina Fontaine (Santiago, Chile) respectively. Sophomore Elisa Aoki (Bradenton, Fla.), junior Katie Detlefsen (Eagan, Minn.) and senior Victoria Tomko (Lontzen, Belgium) finish out UCF's lineup for the weekend.
