WSU women’s golf will travel on Monday Sept. 23 and Tuesday, Sept. 24. to Coeur D’Alene Idaho, to participate in the CDA Resort Collegiate Invitational hosted by University of Gonzaga.

The event is a 16-team tournament played on the resort course as a par-71 at 6,099 yards.

The team is led by 11th-year head coach Kelli Kamimura, and the cougars scoring five will be led by senior Marie Lund-Hansen along with redshirt-junior Emily Baumgart, sophomore Amy Chu, sophomore Darcy Habgood, and freshman Jiye Ham. Sophomore Cameron March will be golfing individually.

The Cougars started off their year hosting the Cougar Cup, where they placed 5th, but the team will look to improve as they will compete against some of the same opponents, such as Gonzaga, Idaho, and BYU.
