OXFORD, Miss. – For the sixth consecutive year, the Ole Miss women’s golf team will open its fall schedule at the Cougar Classic in Charleston, S.C.
The tournament, which runs Sunday-Tuesday, is hosted by the College of Charleston at Yeamans Hall. The field for the three-day tournament includes 10 of the top 15 teams from the 2012 NCAA Championship, including each of the top five.
The field includes several ranked teams including: No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 Southern Cal, No. 4 LSU, No. 6 North Carolina, No. 7 Auburn, No. 8 Duke, No. 9 Vanderbilt, No. 12 Georgia, No. 13 Florida, No. 15 Tennessee No. 18 South Carolina, No. 21 Virginia and No. 23 N.C. State.

During the Cougar Classic in 2011, Haley Sanders posted what was her second career top-20 finish (215) while the Rebels finished 11th as a team out of a field of 22.
The Rebels are coming off a 2011-12 season in which the team earned its fourth-consecutive NCAA Regional bid. The team is led by Sanders, who played in all 10 tournaments last year and recorded four top-20 finishes and Schneider who competed in nine tournaments last season and earned two top-20 finishes.
