JACKSONVILLE, Florida - Coach Christa Teno has set her starting five for the Bubba Burger Jacksonville Classic for the Monday, October 2 and Tuesday, October 3 tournament at Marsh Landing Country Club (including 18 holes of practice on Sunday). No suprise the Tai Annudit will be leading the squad again. Joining her will be Freshmen Sophia Warren and Alex Giles, both of whom played in the Lady Falcon Invite. Sophomores Sam Brimhall and Maria Cowan will round out the Raider five.
"I'm looking forward to some good golf, we've had great practice since our last event," stated Teno. "The 36-holes on Monday are always a mental as well as physical challenge."
Marsh Landing Country Club is a course the Raiders know well. Last year, the Raiders finished second out of 15 teams on the 6,800 yard course. SSC was beaten by the host school, Jacksonville, but defeated their rivals Daytona State.
After the JU Classic, Seminole State will travel to Boca Raton for the FAU Classic on October 15 & 16.
