This year's Mount men's team will consist of six freshmen, six sophomores, and two juniors. On the women's side, the Mountaineers have one freshman (Taylor Woodward), two sophomores (Michaila Cheung and Sophia Vargas), and one junior (Olivia Gardenhour). Kevin Farrell is back for his second consecutive season as head coach of the men's and women's programs, returning to the same position he held from 2009-12.

LOOKING BACK

Jack Snyder registered the Mount's best individual performance placing in a tie for 67th at +16. Missouri went on to claim its seventh straight crown at Turning Stone.

Flashing back to the Roseanne Schwartz Invitational in 2018, Olivia Gardenhour paced the Mountaineers by shooting +16 at the tournament to finish in a tie for 24th place. Youngstown State claimed the tournament title with a 577 (+1) team score.

LOOKING AHEAD

The women's team returns to action next weekend at the Farleigh Dickinson Invitational September 7th and 8th at Crystal Springs Golf Club in Hamburg, N.J. The men's team will head to the Joe Feaganes Marshall Invitational at Guyan Golf & Country Club in Huntington, West Virginia on September 9th and 10th.
