OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss women’s golf team heads to Hawaii this week for the Anuenue Spring Break Classic hosted by the University of Hawai’i. The Rebels, who are traveling to Hawai’i for the second consecutive season, will play at The Bay Course in Kapalua, Maui. The three-day, 54-hole tournament opens action on Monday (March 24) and runs through Wednesday (March 26).

Ole Miss will again travel its entire team this week. Abby Newton, Stani Schiavone, Alison Hovatter, Taelor Rubin and Maria Toennessen will compete in the team competition, while Kaitlin Voll and Kathryn Fowler will play as individuals.

Joining the Rebels in the 15-team field are: Cal Poly, Colorado, Fresno State, Hawai’i, Long Beach State, Nevada, Oregon State, Pepperdine, San Jose State, Santa Clara, Seattle, UC Davis, UC Riverside and Washington. For the second consecutive week, Ole Miss will be the lone SEC team in the field.

“Process – everything we do is all about the process and not the outcome,” said head coach Michele Drinkard. “We had a good finish in Arizona at the Clover Cup and we were able to check off some personal and team goals.”  

The Rebels are looking to keep the momentum from their fourth-place showing at the Clover Cup in Mesa, Ariz. Ole Miss had three players conclude the tournament in top 20, highlighted by a season-best seventh place finish from Newton. Additionally, the Rebels had two eagles last week courtesy of Schiavone and Rubin.

“That tournament is now behind us. We enjoyed it, we have cataloged the experience and we will use the positive aspects and improve the areas that will better our game,” said Drinkard.  “This is a new tournament and the process begins again.”

Ole Miss will be playing at the The Bay Course in Kapalua, Maui this week. The course is consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful and top-rated resort courses.

“This week the team will experience one of the top resort golf courses in the world in Kapalua Bay Course,” said Drinkard. “The course is designed for the trade winds and the views are spectacular as you can imagine. We look forward to getting out in our practice round and mapping out a plan for success with each player.”

The Rebels  return to Oxford for the sixth annual Rebel Intercollegiate April 4-6 as part of Ole Miss’ Grove Bowl week. Ole Miss will welcome 17 teams to the Ole Miss Golf Course for the fifth annual tournament. The Rebels will also host a College-Am on Thursday April 3. For more information on the 2014 College Am contact, associate head coach Janell Howland (janell@olemiss.edu )or 662-816-5011.
