    Hey there Illini fans,

    Hope you are all enjoying the start of  Spring. I know our team did over this past week in Georgia! We may not have played to our best ability at the Insperity Lady Jaguar Intercollegiate, but we still had a fun trip and worked hard on golf at the same time. A highlight from the tournament was Ember Schuldt placing ninth with 75- 73-74.  The course, Forest Hills Golf Club, played challenging for all with extremely fast greens and a lot of undulation, so Ember's scores were very respectable. She is definitely feeling great about her game right now, and the rest of us are going to work hard in the upcoming two weeks so we feel great about our game too as the season is coming to a close.

    Hi Illini nation!!

    We have just returned from our first full-field tournament in Peoria, Ariz., at the Westbrook Invitational. We were so excited to kick off the spring season at this tournament, and it doesn't hurt that we left Champaign right after our first snowfall of the winter for sunny skies in Arizona. We arrived in Peoria on Friday evening and Sam Postillion picked a pretty awesome Mexican place for dinner. Afterwards we went to our host families.  I stayed with Ember this weekend, and our host mom was the greatest. As soon as we walked in the door she had homemade hot cocoa ready for us and made us an amazing breakfast before the practice round.
