(Kansas City, Mo.) – The UMKC women’s golf team and head coach Brianna Broderick announced their 2013 schedule on Thursday with the slate highlighted by a pair of home tournaments.

“We are looking forward to our tournament schedule this next year,” Broderick said.  “We feel that it will be a good test of golf and give our players a competitive edge with the competition we will be competing against.” 

The ‘Roos will open up the season on Sep. 9-10 when they head north to Lincoln, Neb., for the Chip-N Club Invitational hosted by Nebraska before making their annual appearance in the Marilynn Smith Sunflower Invitational hosted by Kansas State in Manhattan, Kan., on Sep. 23-24. 

The following week, the Kangaroos will host their fall tournament at Shoal Creek Golf Course on Sep. 30 - Oct. 1, while the spring event will take place on Apr. 7-8 and conclude the regular season.

“We are also enthusiastic about having the opportunity to host two home tournaments this year,” Broderick added.  “We had a very successful showing this past spring so it was only natural to host again in the spring of 2014.  Hosting an event this fall will be great allowing the players to compete yet still be home in Kansas City.”

Kansas City will close out the fall season with the MSU/Payne Stewart Memorial on Oct. 14-15 in Springfield, Mo., and the Blue Raider Invitational on Oct. 21-12 in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

The ‘Roos then open up championship play at the Rio Verde Collegiate Invitational on Mar. 7-9 before taking part in the Jackrabbit Invitational on Mar. 17-18 and UALR Women’s Golf Classic on Mar. 24-25.

After the ‘Roos spring event, the squad will then wrap-up the 2013-14 season when they head to Mesa, Ariz., for their inaugural trip to the WAC Women’s Golf Championship.

“The WAC Championship will be a great conference for us to continue on the path we are headed on,” Broderick concluded.  “We are excited to establish new rivalries and looking forward to the competition that the WAC produces from its programs.”
