WACO, Texas - The Baylor women's golf team will host Kent State in a rare dual match Tuesday at Ridgewood Country Club. Both teams will compete for 18 holes on the par-72 course with tee times beginning at 2 p.m. CDT.
Tuesday's dual match was added to Baylor's schedule earlier this month and provides the Lady Bears with a tune-up before their final two tournaments of the spring. No. 31 Kent State has posted four top-five finishes this season, including three second-place showings.
Six Lady Bears will compete in the 18-hole dual match, while the top four scores will count towards the team score. Junior Chelsey Cothran, senior Lene Hafsten-Morch, junior Jaclyn Jansen and senior Jordan Rhodes will make their eighth appearances in Baylor's starting lineup; senior Morgan Chambers and freshman Kaylin Terry will both be making their fifth appearances of the season.
Cothran leads the team in scoring average (74.10), score vs. par (2.10), rounds of par or better (seven) and top-25 finishes (five). The Springdale, Ark., product is the only Lady Bear to have each one of her rounds count towards the team score. Hafsten-Morch and Jansen rank second and third, respectively, behind Cothran in scoring average. Both golfers own a pair of top-10 finishes.
Following Tuesday's dual match, Baylor will return to action March 25-26 at the MountainView Collegiate in Tucson, Ariz.
