Women's Golf to Begin Competition in 2009-10
May 17, 2008
NACOGDOCHES - Stephen F. Austin has just recently wrapped up the 2007-08 academic year, but the SFA athletics department is already making plans for the 2009-10 season when it will field a women's golf team. Lumberjack golf coach Trey Schroeder will oversee both programs, and will spend the upcoming season recruiting athletes for an eight-person roster, completing a schedule and hiring a staff for the following year.
"Bringing women's golf to our athletic program fits within our goal of sponsoring sports that have both conference and NCAA championships," said Director of Athletics Robert Hill. "I have great confidence in Trey. He has a wonderful enthusiasm for the game and a burning desire to get both men's and women's golf programs into contention for future Southland Conference championships."
The women's golf team will immediately begin competing in the SLC. The Ladyjacks will bring the league's membership in women's golf to nine schools, leaving only Texas-Arlington, Northwestern State and Southeastern Louisiana as the schools not sponsoring the sport.
